What is the reason for the lacunae in lines 2227-2230?

The lacunae introduce a shift in rhythm different from that created by the caesurae.
The manuscript was charred in a fire.
The original scops forgot the lines due to the oral nature of the original poem.
Here the original vellum was scraped away to make room for llustrations.
