Sigv Víkv 9I/7 — fell ‘fell’

Vann ungr konungr Englum
ótrauðr skarar rauðar;
endr kom brúnt á branda
blóð í Nýjamóðu.
Nú hefk orrostur, austan
ógnvaldr, níu talðar;
herr fell danskr, þars dǫrrum
dreif mest at Ôleifi.

Ungr, ótrauðr konungr vann Englum rauðar skarar; brúnt blóð kom endr á branda í Nýjamóðu. Nú hefk talðar níu orrostur, ógnvaldr austan; danskr herr fell, þars dǫrrum dreif mest at Ôleifi.

The young, not unwilling king made the hair of the English red; dark red blood again came onto swords in Nýjamóða. Now I have enumerated nine battles, battle-causer [WARRIOR] from the east; the Danish army fell, where spears drove most against Óláfr.
