rara aralar

24-7-2016

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.

arala

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

f99v ara

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
