Note to Ív Sig 2II

[7-8]: Damaged in Mork (Mork was already damaged when it was copied in 761bˣ by ÁM) and the meaning of the last helmingr must be gleaned from the prose (Mork 1928-32, 406): Þar var Sigvrðr at raþom oc vigi ens gꜹfga mannz er Þorkell fostri het ‘There Sigurðr participated in the conspiracy against, and in the killing of, the distinguished man who was called Þorkell fóstri’. Þorkell fóstri had accompanied Sigurðr’s half-brother, Haraldr gilli, from the Hebrides to Norway (c. 1128). See MsonaHkr (ÍF 28, 299).
