Note to Anon Sól 80VII

[3] Sváfr ok Sváfrlogi ‘Sváfr and Sváfrlogi’: It is not clear who these figures are; for the names, cf. one of Óðinn’s names, Sváfnir ‘one who puts to sleep’ (LP: Sváfnir). For Björn M. Ólsen 1915, they are men who have fallen completely under the influence of the Deadly Sins.
