Note to Þjóð Yt 16I

[13] dáðsæll ‘deed-fortunate’: ÍF 26 selects the J reading dagsæll ‘having fortunate days’, as Wadstein (1895a, 70-1) had suggested, and notes that dáðsæll could have been influenced by the preceding dáðgjarn ‘deed-eager’. However, there is no necessity to depart from the main ms.  here.
