History

Origin

The fragment is written in Iceland. Kristian Kålund once dated it the fourteenth century (KKKat). Later Oscar Albert Johnsen and Jón Helgason dated it the last quarter of the thirteenth century (Johnsen & Jón Helgason 1941, p. 962).

Provenance

A rather coarse seventeenth century hand has written on the old writing verso: “Steynun Olafs dotter aa þessa Bok hia mier Snæbirne Torffa syne Anno 1643”. The man is probably the lawman Snæbjörn Torfason of Kirjuból in Langadal, later of Bær in Króksfjörður (d. 1666), Steinunn Ólafsdóttir cannot be identified.
