6. Sigla for sources

This chapter sets out a series of sigla for sources, both for manuscripts and for major prose works in which skaldic verse is embedded. Editors should use these sigla for manuscripts, sources of skaldic poetry, poems and poets. In the majority of cases, we will use the sigla in ONP Registre, which will shortly be available on-line at the skaldic edition’s web site. Editors may also consult the printed listing of medieval manuscripts in ONP Registre, pp. 431-97.
