Óre versus rómen
I got this question: in KLIII, words _Perhael_ and _Iorhael_ are
written differently, _Perhael_ with óre, _Iorhael_ with rómen: why?

The answers on the net concerning this matter somehow differs as

compound? But in that position, it is no more voiceless, right? Or is
I can't make head or tail of it.
Thanks for any help.

R is written with óre medially. So my guess is that this is a
mistake. (Unless some very esotheric rule is in effect... :-)
As for compound words, I beleive that we don't have any
examples, so it's anybody's guess. If a general rule is
to be formulated, I'd say keep it simple and use óre only
