[1]sculon ...ælmıhtıg·] Large stain obscures some text down outside (right) margin of p. 195.

[2]meahte] <a> ill-formed or damaged.

[3]modgeþanc] <mod> appears to have bled slightly.

[4]ee{c}e] With <c> corrected from some other letter (perhaps a partially completed <e>?).

[5]a{d}rihten] With <d> perhaps corrected from some other letter (<a>?).

[6]ece|] Dobbie 1937 reads éce; the “accent” looks like a stain in facsimile.

[7]n{r}um] With <r> perhaps corrected from some other letter (<n>?).
