Enn lét Ôleifr endr sverðþing verða háit sjaunda sinni á landi Ulfkels, sem ferk máli. Kind Ellu stóð alla Hringmaraheiði; herfall vas þar, es arfvǫrðr Haralds olli starfi.
Yet again Óláfr caused a sword-assembly [BATTLE] to be held for the seventh time in Ulfcytel’s land, as I recount the tale. The offspring of Ælla [= Englishmen] stood over all Ringmere Heath; there was slaying of the army there, where the guardian of Haraldr’s inheritance [= Óláfr] caused exertion.
 Ellu: ‘elle’ 68
 kind Ellu ‘the offspring of Ælla [= Englishmen]’: The allusion may be to the Northumbrian king Ælla who according to the ASC (s. a. 867) was not of royal birth and was killed by the Danes at York in 867, yet who appears in skaldic poetry as ‘a defining ancestor for the Anglo-Saxon royal house’ (see Note to Sigv Knútdr 1/1 and Townend 1997).
