Note to Þjóð Yt 25I

[6] at ǫlum stilli ‘against the drunk ruler’: This matches the context of stanza and prose, as well as the evidence of other occurrences of the adj. (CVC: ölr). The phrase partially duplicates at hilmi ‘against the leader’ and could be construed either as appositional (so Yt 1925, FF, Åkerlund 1939, 115, Hkr 1991 and the present edn) or as a kind of ablativus absolutus meaning ‘while the ruler was drunk’ (so Bugge 1894, 164, Hkr 1893-1901, IV, Skj B and ÍF 26).
