Note to Anon Lil 80VII

[3-4] myndir lítaz ‘images appear’: Lítaz is the reflexive form of líta ‘see’. The reflexive usually means ‘think, seem’, but its association here with myndir, which can mean ‘picture’ or ‘image’ as well as ‘conception’ or ‘idea’ suggests that we are meant to think of visual images.
