Note to Þhorn Gldr 2I

[1] gerðisk ‘made’: The interpretation of this m. v. verb is problematic. (a) Finnur Jónsson (1884, 71; Hkr 1893-1901, IV; Skj B), Eggert Ó. Brím (ÓT 1892, 345) and Kock (NN §230) emend to gerði and combine it with jǫru-gný glymja, hence ‘made the din of battle resound’. (b) ÍF 26, Fidjestøl (1982, 78), Hkr 1991 and this edn avoid emendation and interpret gerðisk glymja, lit. ‘made himself resound’ as ‘made clangour’ or similar. (c) Holtsmark (1927, 7), on the other hand, separates the two words and forms two sentences: gerðisk helkannandi hlenna ‘he became the punisher of thieves’, and a second in which dróttir (mss dróttar) ‘hosts’ is the subject of 3rd pers. pl. pres. glymja; on this see Note to l. 4 glymja.
