hjartarhorn,        þat er ór haugi bar
        inn vitri Vígdvalinn.

Arfi, ek einn, faðir, ok þeir synir Sólkötlu, hefi ráðit hjartarhorn, þat er inn vitri Vígdvalinn bar ór haugi.

readings

[2] ráðit: so all others, ‘rad’ with smudged superscript letter 166bˣ

notes

[2] ráðit ‘interpreted’: 166bˣ’s ‘rad’ is followed by a smudged superscript which is likely to be a <t>, giving the same reading as the other mss.
