Note to Sigv Vestv 6I

[4, 6] stallarar þínir; beimum ‘your marshals; men [us]’: The prose account makes no mention of any travelling companions, though such are referred to in sts 1/1 (Bergr) and 5/4 (Húnn = Bersi). Alternatively, the plurals could have sg. reference, and that is how they are taken in Skj B and ÍF 27.
