      Stolen *by* Dúkú; 'stolen from' would be <stolit frá>.

      I believe that you're thinking of <hversu>. <Hverjum> is
      the dative of <hverr> 'who', so it's 'And on whom will you
      avenge your father'. <Hefna> takes the genitive for the
      thing or person for which/whom vengeance is taken, and the
      dative for the person on whom it's taken.

      I don't see any way to make sense of <þá> as the accusative
      plural of the demonstrative pronoun: <Seið-Dróttin> is
      definitely a masculine accusative singular. Either it's
      'then', or it's an error for <þann>.
