Ólhelg Lv 1I/2 — fell ‘fell’

Fyll horn, kona;         fell af hesti
Rannveigar sonr,         þars riðu drengir.
Kunnut Sygnir         á sǫðuldýrum
fullvel fara;         fœr mér ok þér.

Fyll horn, kona; sonr Rannveigar fell af hesti, þars drengir riðu. Sygnir kunnut fara fullvel á sǫðuldýrum; fœr mér ok þér.

Fill the horn, woman; Rannveig’s son [= Halldórr] fell from his horse where the fine fellows were riding. The Sygnir do not know how to travel very well on saddle-beasts [HORSES]; bring [it] to me and to you.
