Footnotes:

1. The additions from Linn and Sash throw off the alliteration in the Old English, but some scholars believe they indicate a lost half-line in the original text.

 

5. The reference here to Sea-Danes and sea-riders above (line 2) have led McPherson to relate this story to the arrival of the Angles in Britain.

 

8. Hroth remains unidentified.
