Notes

*Stevenson 1904, p. 256, dubious; Robinson 1923, p. 117, dubious; Hart, ECEE, no. 16 and pp. 173-86, clumsy but basically authentic text, drawn up at Thorney, general structure modelled on S 782, exists in more than one recension, the final version being created after Edgar's death; Whitelock 1966, p. 103, suspicious, cf. S 818; Whitelock 1969, p. 114, correcting details of Hart's edition; Whitelock 1970, p. 132, partly based on S 782; Hart, ECNE, p. 386, some passages repeated n S 911; PN Lincs., ii. 15, iii. 94-6; Wormald 1988, no. 41; Kennedy 1995, p. 133 n. 13, p. 138 n. 28, spurious but incorporates some early detail; cf. S 911
