In the spring of 1180, Magnús Erlingsson summons the levy from the entire western coast of Norway. He sails with his fleet from south-eastern Norway and north to Trondheim, where Sverrir has been spending the winter. Archbishop Eysteinn Erlendsson accompanies Magnús. This st. enumerates the units that participate in that expedition.

This st., which is anonymous in all mss, is the only one in Sv that is cited as verification of information given in the prose. — The Rygir were the people from modern Rogaland, the Hǫrðar the people from Hordaland and the Filir were the inhabitants of Fjalir, the south-western part of Sunnfjord. The Sygnir hailed from Sogn, the Firðir from Fjordane and the Mœrir from Møre. — [1]: Echoes Gísl Magnkv 2/5.
