Lausavísur

Ármóðr (Árm) is only known from Orkn. He is said to have been one of two Icelanders (the other is Oddi inn litli (Oddi)) who came to the court of Jarl Rǫgnvaldr Kali Kolsson (Rv) in Orkney one autumn; he is described as a skáld (ÍF 34, 200-1) on his arrival, and as one of the skáld jarls ‘skalds of the jarl’ who accompany Rǫgnvaldr on his journey to the Holy Land (ÍF 34, 204). Although the main saga ms. (Flat) says that Ármóðr was hjaltlenzkr ‘from Shetland’, all eds have preferred the reading of the two other mss, which say that he was an Icelander (Orkn 1913-16, 221 and n. 1).
