Note to Anon Nkt 68II

[10] * fylgði henni ‘accompanied her’: Both Skj B and Skald omit at (henni at fylgði; so Flat) and Finnur gives ‘survived’ as the meaning of fylgði. Fylgja is not attested in that meaning, however (see LP: fylgja; Fritzner: fylgja). Jón’s father, Loptr Sæmundarson, married Þóra Magnússdóttir in Norway (Stu 1878, I, 189), and Jón was fostered in Norway by Andréas Brúnsson and his wife Solveig (see MbHgHkr, ÍF 28, 288). This st. most likely refers to the return of Jón from Norway in the company of his mother. Þóra died in 1175.
