We may satisfy ourselves that Borges is not using the Old Norse text of Finnur Jonsson directly, since Gilchrist Brodeur's seemingly haphazard additions to his source--an "and" between "Nordri" and "Sudri," semicolons following names such as "Dvalinn"--are carried over seamlessly into Borges's translation.
