Note to TorfE Lv 1I

[3] dolga ‘of enemies’: (a) This reading is attested in mss from both branches of the Hkr stemma, and in 332ˣ, and is adopted in several eds (e.g. Skj B; Orkn 1913-16; ÍF 26; von See 1960; ÍF 34). (b) Dœla ‘of the men of the valleys’ occurs in , Flat and the Fsk transcripts and is the lectio difficilior (it is adopted in Hkr 1991, 1, 81-2 and ÍF 29). Its precise force in this context is not clear, but it could designate men from the (Norwegian) valleys who supported the sons of Haraldr hárfagri.
