Þats mér sagt,
at Sigurðr hrísi
en Sigurðr sýrr
Þats mér sagt, at sonr Haralds héti Sigurðr hrísi forðum. Halfdan vas arfi Hrísa, en Sigurðr sýrr sonr Halfdanar.
That has been told me that Haraldr’s son was called Sigurðr hrísi (‘Illegitimate’) in olden times. Hálfdan was the heir of Hrísi, and Sigurðr sýrr (‘Sow’) [was] the son of Hálfdan.
Readings:  sonr: son Flat
Notes: [All]: The wording of this st. corresponds closely to the prose of Mork (1928-32, 56): Ætt Haralldz er su so᷎gd ath verid hafe at Haralldr harfagre atti son þann er kalladr var Sigurdr hrise. han var fadir Haldanar fodr Sigurdar syrs fodr Haralldz ‘The genealogy of Haraldr is said to have been such, that Haraldr hárfagri had a son who was called Sigurðr hrísi. He was the father of Hálfdan, the father of Sigurðr sýrr, the father of Haraldr’. Cf. also HN (MHN 109-10): Sigwardus risi (id est gigas), filius Haraldi comati genuit Halfdanum patrem istius Sigwardi ‘Sigurðr risi (that is ‘Giant’), the son of Haraldr ‘the Long-haired’, begot Hálfdan the father of this Sigurðr’. —  Sigurðr hrísi ‘Sigurðr hrísi (“Illegitimate”)’: He was the son of Haraldr hárfagri and Snæfríðr (see Genealogy II.2.f in ÍF 28). —  sýrr (m. nom. sg.) ‘(“Sow”)’: The ms. uses the m. form rather than the more customary f. form (sýr) of Sigurðr’s nickname. —  sonr ‘[was] the son’: The m. nom. sg. ending is necessary from a grammatical point of view (this is not a cpd; see ANG §395.1).
