Note to Sigv Ást 1I

[3] es ‘to whom’: The Kx reading sú es (f. nom. sg.) is grammatically incorrect, as the demonstrative should be þeiri, f. dat. sg. agreeing with dœtr ‘daughter’ (or possibly þá, f. acc. sg. as the object of the rel. clause, cf. NS §260), and both Kock (NN §2775 and ÍF 28 prefer the reading of J2x and E, as here.
