As st. 5 above.

In Mork and F, ll. 1-2 form a helmingr with ll. 3-4 of st. 9 below, and ll. 3-4 are recorded in Hkr and H-Hr only. According to the prose of Mork and Fsk (ÍF 29, 307), Magnús proceeded from Lewis to Skye, and then to Tiree and North Uist (st. 8 below). He could not have sailed from Skye to the Isle of Man (see st. 9) and then doubled back to Tiree. Hence the prose of Mork is correct (and provides the same information as is given in the st. in Hkr), but the couplet must have been misplaced in Mork, and the order of ll. in the Hkr redaction has therefore been retained in the present edn.
