Mest váru mér
manna hugðir
Hrókr, bróðir minn,
ok Hálfr konungr,
Styrr ok Steinar,
sterkir báðir,
snarráðir menn,
synir Gunnlaðar.

 

Most friendly of [all] men towards me were Hrókr, my brother, and King Hálfr, Styrr and [the two] Steinar, both strong, resolute men, the sons of Gunnlǫð.

notes: [5-6]: Some eds have rearranged these lines, to conform better to the prose text, which mentions a Styrr hinn sterki ‘the Strong’ (Hálf 1981, 177, ch. 5, l. 17); Hálf 1864 has Styrr hinn sterki ok Steinar báðir, while Edd. Min. and Hálf 1909 have Styrr enn sterki, Steinar báðir, Hálf 1909 omitting the comma.
