The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Átta nætr
sat ek milli elda hér
svá að mér manngi mat né bauð
nema einn Agnarr
er einn skal ráða,
Geirröðar sonr,
Gotna landi.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Eight nights I have sat here between the fires,
yet no one offered me food,
except Agnar alone, and he alone shall rule,
the son of Geirrod, the land of the Goths.)
