ESk Elfv 2II/3 — stríðri ‘the swift’

Mǫrg flutu auð (á úrga)
— alm sveigði lið — (hjalma
rauð flugu stôl) í stríðri
stafnblóðug skip móðu,
áðr á grund af grœðis
gœðinga lið flœði
— sveit varð í rym rítar
rýr — Hôkonar dýrum.

Mǫrg stafnblóðug skip flutu auð í stríðri móðu—lið sveigði alm; rauð stôl flugu á úrga hjalma—, áðr lið gœðinga flœði á grund af dýrum grœðis Hôkonar; sveit varð rýr í rym rítar.

Many prow-bloody ships floated empty in the swift estuary—the troop bent the bow; red weapons flew at wet helmets—, before the chieftains’ troop fled ashore from Hákon’s animals of the ocean [SHIPS]; the company was reduced in the noise of the shield [BATTLE].


[3] stríðri: stríði J2ˣ, 42ˣ
