Anon Mgr 51VII
Kari Ellen Gade (ed.) 2007, ‘Anonymous Poems, Drápa af Máríugrát 51’ in Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.), Poetry on Christian Subjects. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 7. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 794.
 launið (2nd pers. pl. pres. subj.) ‘you reward’: Launi (3rd pers. sg./pl. pres. subj.) ‘reward’ (so 713) is ungrammatical because the verb has a 2nd pers. pl. subject (ykkr bæði ‘you both’; see NS §70).
 mig ‘me’: The pron. is written above the l. in 713, and Skj B emends to þá ‘then’, with sál mína ‘my soul’ (l. 8) as the only object of leittu ‘lead’ (l. 5). Skald omits the pron. altogether and inserts the excrescent -u- in ítr (i.e. ítur ‘splendid’). The present edn follows Wrightson.
