Skinfaxi heitir
er inn skíra dregr
dag um dróttmögu;
hesta beztr
þykkir hann með Reiðgotum,
ey lýsir mön af mari.   (eddic or germanic)

(Odin said:
12
‘Shining-mane, the shining one is called
who draws day over mankind;
the best of horses he is held to be among the Hreid-Goths,*
always that horse’s mane gleams.’)
