Arn Hardr 14II/4 — borði ‘plank’

Vítt fór vǫlsungs heiti;
varð marglofaðr harða,
sás skaut ór Nið nýtla
norðan herskips borði.

Heiti vǫlsungs fór vítt; varð harða marglofaðr, sás skaut nýtla borði herskips norðan ór Nið.

The [great] name of the sovereign went far and wide; he was most highly praised, who launched skilfully the warship’s plank from the north out of Nidelven.


[4] norðan herskips borði: norðr hafskíða borðum Flat
