Mark Eirdr 7II/5 — Alla ‘absolute’

Hróðigr átti brynþings beiðir
bjartan auð ok frœknligt hjarta
minni gnógt ok manvit annat
mest; fylgðu því hvergi lestir.
Alla hafði ǫðlingr snilli;
ungr nam hann á margar tungur;
Eirekr vas, sás mátti meira,
mestr ofrhugi, jǫfri flestum.

Hróðigr beiðir brynþings átti bjartan auð ok frœknligt hjarta, gnógt minni ok mest annat manvit; lestir fylgðu hvergi því. Ǫðlingr hafði alla snilli; ungr nam hann á margar tungur; Eirekr, sás mátti meira flestum jǫfri, vas mestr ofrhugi.

The famed convenor of the byrnie-meeting [BATTLE > WARRIOR] had bright wealth and a brave heart, abundant memory and other common sense to the highest degree; flaws did not accompany that. The ruler had absolute eloquence; when young he learned many languages; Eiríkr, who could do more than most princes, was the most courageous.
