Af líkam verðr antonomasía sem hér:
97. Hár rauð hvassa geira
hneig þjóð í gras blóði.
Hér er hár kallaðr konungrinn, ok er þar óeiginlig líking milli þess nafns hár ok eiginligs nafns Hrings konungs.
Antonomasia occurs by the body, as here:
Here, the king is called "the high one," and there is an improper comparison between the noun Hár ("the high one") and the actual name of the king, Hring.
