Ólafs saga helga
Incipit

sik. Sighvatr kuad

Note
Fol. 1v is all in all illegible because the text has been washed away (

Johnsen & Jón Helgason 1941, p. 961

) or scraped off (

KKKat

), but a few words can be deciphered:
  • It is certain that 1v begins with the words: “uid Nid. Voro þau þa nidr fallin”
  • 1v:20 has: “tir jolin bydr ut leid”
  • 1v:21 “riker ok sua”
  • 1v:24 “þamba .s. magr hans uar med honum”
  • 1v:27 “lidinu austr til uikr”
  • 1v:30 has inter alia: “konungs hofud”
  • 1v:31 “Sunnu dags”
