The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Fimmhundruð dura
ok um fjórum tögum,
svá hygg ek að Valhöllu vera;
átta hundruð einherja
ganga ór einum durum
þá er þeir fara að vitni að vega.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Five hundred daises and forty,
so I think Bilskirnir has in all;*
of all those halls which I know to be roofed,
my son’s I know is the greatest.)
