This helmingr (Anon (SnE) 12) is transmitted in mss R (main ms.), , A and C of Skm (SnE). It is anonymous in all mss, and Finnur Jónsson (Skj) assigns it to the tenth century. The date cannot be ascertained.

Erum á leið frá láði
liðnir Finnum skriðnu;
austr sék fjǫll af flausta
ferli geisla merluð.

 

We have set out to sea from the land traversed on ski by the Saami; from {the path of ships} [SEA] I see mountains in the east illuminated by a beam of light.

context: The helmingr is one of several illustrating various heiti for ‘sea’, here, leið.
