Note to stanza

1. 38. Óttarr svarti, 1. Hǫfuðlausn, 10 [Vol. 1, 753]

[8] of beldir ‘you harmed’: There is a problem here in that no ms. reads of beldir. Those that read beldir have at þú rather than of, while those that read of have beldi (presumably an impersonal 3rd pers. sg. form). The best mss seem to point to a reading of at beldir (with þú a later, hypometrical addition), but this seems unlikely since the conj. at is already present in l. 7. The reading favoured here is also adopted in Skj B, Skald and ÍF 27. On the verb bella see NN §2218 .
