Kari Ellen Gade (ed.) 2007, ‘Anonymous Poems, Máríuvísur III 4’ in Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.), Poetry on Christian Subjects. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 7. Turnhout: Brepols, pp. 720-1.
 Rítar: ‘Rítur’ 721
 rítar (f. gen. sg.) ‘of the shield’: The emendation is necessary to provide a determinant in the kenning for ‘man’ (rítr is nom. or acc. pl.). Wrightson suggests that rítr could be gen. sg. (the noun is a f. consonant stem; see ANG §413), but the gen. sg. ending -ar is ensured elsewhere by the metre (e.g. Mv I 21).
 hjartað (‘hjarṭạð̣’): so 1032ˣ, ‘hjart[...]’ 721
 það: so 1032ˣ, þar 721
 það ‘that’: The 721 reading þar ‘there’ makes no sense in this context. Other eds resolve the abbreviation in 721 as það ‘that’.
