dróttinn (m. nom. sg.) ‘lord’: The present edn follows Konráð Gíslason (1895-7, I, 82), Finnur Jónsson and Kock (Skj B; Skald), who all chose the reading of G, 8 and Flat (construed as a form of address), rather than the reading of F, E and 81a, dróttin (m. acc. sg.) ‘lord’ (see the comparable construction in st. 1/1-2 above). If the acc. dróttin is retained, dróttin Sygna could be taken as an apposition to þik (m. acc. sg.) ‘you’: bað þik, snjallráðan dróttin Sygna ‘asked you, the wise-ruling lord of the Sygnir’.
