Note to Þhorn Gldr 5I

[4] bryngǫgl ‘mail-shirt-goslings [ARROWS]’: Bryn-, the reading of Fsk and most Hkr mss, produces an ornamental double aðalhending in l. 4, of bryn : dyn and gǫgl : Skǫglar (see Kuhn 1983, 282; Naumann 1998, 239). The variant ben- ‘wound’ in some mss would give bengǫgl ‘wound-goslings [RAVEN/EAGLE]’, but bryn is preferable since it is the reading of the main ms .
