Note to Anon (Hsona) 2II

[All]: For Sigurðr’s dealings with the Saami, see also Slembir Lv and Context. He commissioned two ships from them because he had cut the stem and the stern off his own ship and sunk it in Øksfjorden (Ægisfjǫrðr), presumably to avoid detection while he and his men were in hiding (ÍF 28, 311; Mork 1928-32, 425). He could have saved the stem and the stern because of their value (they needed to buy provisions for the winter).
