would also as easily be the other reading, common to one class of the
Grettir MSS.: var hánum vetri fátt í v{tugum} or í hinum v. tug, by
dropping the syllable 'hálf.'

[Footnote 21: A man of twenty, thirty, forty, &c., is in the Icelandic
expressed by the adjective tvítugr, prítugr, fertugr; a man
twenty-five, thirty-five, &c., is hálf-prítugr, hálf-fertugr,
&c.; the units beyond the tens are expressed by the particle
um, a man of twenty-one, thirty-seven, or forty-nine, is said
to have einn (i.e., vetr. winter) um = beyond, tvítugt,
sjö um þrítugt, níu um fertugt, &c.]

If the whole passage on page 243, beginning with the words quoted in
the commencement of this note, be not indeed a later interpolation, we
believe that all that follows the words, 'till the time when he dealt
with Glam, the Thrall,' must, indeed, be taken as an interpolation of
later commentators.

Our suggestion recommends itself in this at least, that it brings
about full harmony between the statements, here treated of, and the
saga itself, for when Grettir left the land in 1011 he was fourteen
years of age, and twenty years later, or 1031, he fell. How far his
age thus given agrees or not with the decrepitude of his father, who
died in 1015, having been apparently already a bedridden man for some
time, is a matter of itself, and need not affect the accuracy of our
suggestion, which, however, we only put forth as a conjecture, not
having within reach the MSS. of Grettir's saga. A critical examination
of these might, perhaps, allow of a more positive discourse on
this vexed point, which to all commentators on Grettir has hitherto
remained an insoluble riddle.

P. 251, 1. 12. The original makes Asdis daughter of Skeggi the
Short-handed. This is here corrected agreeably to Landnáma, and other
records of her family.
