Found this interesting and clear example of repeating text,
which actually is not so common as you might think in the ms: words as labels that are a-like.
Does it depict the name of papaver / poppy ?
(on the left the Rosette page detail)
Searching for these words on the Internet:
arala… no words
aralta=> araltas = heraldy
And have a look at the last word on page 66r, margin:
It says “raral”.
This occurs two times exactly: on 66r here and on the bottom of f106v (a long text page)
Let me find all occurences of: “rara” and “arala” and “ara”
Does it have anything to do with
Hávamál (English pronunciation: /ˈhɑːvəmɑːl/ hah-və-mahl; “sayings of the high one”) is presented as a single poem in the Codex Regius, a collection of Old Norse poems from the Viking age. The poem, itself a combination of different poems, is largely gnomic, presenting advice for living, proper conduct and wisdom.
We don’t know. But perhaps if refers more to the plant genus Aralia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aralia
