Sigv Nesv 14I/8 — ǫll

Afli vex, þvít efla
Upplendingar sendi
— Sveinn, funduð þat — þenna
þilblakks konung vilja.
Raun es hins, at Heinir
(hrælinns) megu vinna
(þeir œxla frør) fleira
fjǫlrekks an ǫl drekka.

Afli vex, þvít Upplendingar vilja efla þenna sendi þilblakks konung; Sveinn, funduð þat. Raun es hins, at Heinir megu vinna fleira an drekka ǫl fjǫlrekks; þeir œxla frør hrælinns.

[His] strength increases, because the Upplendingar want to support this launcher of the plank-horse [SHIP > SEAFARER = Óláfr] as king; Sveinn, you discovered that. There is proof of this, that the Heinir can do more than drink the ale of the man with many warriors; they augment the frost of the corpse-snake [SWORD > BATTLE].
