Note to HSt Rst 30I

[8] jafn ‘the same’:  This m. adj. agrees with goðvefr m. ‘precious cloth’. Konráð Gíslason (1895-7) retains the Bb(112rb) reading jǫfn, suggesting that the scribe had the cloak (skikkja f.) in mind; it could alternatively be n. pl. qualifying goðvefr ok grôn skinn á hônum ‘the precious cloth and the grey fur on it’.
