Anon (Orkn) 1II/8 — landi ‘the land’

Heyrik hitt, en órir
hafa dolgar skap folgit,
þengill ríkr, af þingi
þann kvitt búandmanna,
at valdandar vildi,
vargseðjandi, margir,
at þú vigg á brim byggir
brands en Pál at landi.

Heyrik hitt, ríkr þengill, af þingi—en dolgar órir hafa folgit skap—, þann kvitt búandmanna, at margir valdandar vildi, vargseðjandi, at þú byggir vigg brands á brim en Pál at landi.

I hear this, mighty lord, from the assembly—and our enemies have concealed intent—, the rumour of the landowners that many powerful men wished, wolf-sater [WARRIOR], that you should occupy the steed of the prow [SHIP] on the sea and that Páll should be on the land.
