Eigi gera Húnar oss felmtraða,
hornbogar yðar.

 

The Huns do not make us frightened, nor [do] your horn bows.

context: The couplet is introduced (Heiðr 1960, 56), Gizurr mælti ‘Gizurr said’.

notes: This fragment is presented as prose by all eds but Heiðr 1873 (with conjectural emendations), NK and the Modern Icelandic edn by Jón Helgason (1967, 243). As it stands l. 1 is metrically too long.
