Note to ÞjóðA Magnfl 7II

[1] hundraðs ‘hundred’: The sense may well be approximate, as suggested in ÍF 28 (cf. Hkr 1893-1901, IV), but this is not proven by herr er hundrað ‘a host consists of a hundred’, which ÍF 28 cites from Skm, since the context there is a list of terms for groups and the number of men each of them designates (SnE 1998, I, 107).
