Allengi dvelr Ingi
ofanreið inn þjóbreiði.

 

The broad-arsed Ingi delays his descent overly long.

context: During his campaign in Sweden (c. 1100), Magnús berfœttr leaves behind troops in a stronghold by Lake Vänern under the command of the district chieftains Finnr Skoptason and Sigurðr ullstrengr Loðinsson. As they are waiting for the arrival of the Swed. king, Ingi Steinkelsson, the Norwegians recite this couplet.
