Note to stanza

2. Rǫgnvaldr jarl Kali Kolsson, Lausavísur, 9 [Vol. 2, 586-7]

[1] skinnfeld ‘leather garment’: The various witnesses to the prose of Orkn differ as to what exactly is being offered to Rǫgnvaldr. Flat has skinnfeldarskikkju ‘cloak made of leather’, R702ˣ (which sometimes includes the prose of the saga, but not always exactly) has skinnfeld ... fyrir skikkju ‘piece of leather ... as a cloak’ (also Worm 1650, 117), and Holm papp 39 folˣ (an early modern translation of the saga into Dan.) has en skindfeld oc en kiortel ‘a piece of leather and a tunic’ (Orkn 1913-16, 218 n.). But see above, in which it is suggested that the st. does not describe the gift of a wrinkled garment.
