The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Geirröðr konungr sat ok hafði sverð um kné sér ok brugðið til miðs. En er hann heyrði að Óðinn var þar kominn stóð hann upp ok vildi taka Óðin frá eldinum. Sverðið slapp ór hendi hánum; vissu hjöltin niðr. Konungr drap fæti oksteyptiz áfram en sverðið stóð í gögnum hann ok fekk hann bana. Óðinn hvarf þá. En Agnarr var þar konungr lengi síðan.

(Geirrod the king sat with a sword on his lap, half drawn from the sheath. But when he heard that it was Odin who had come there, he stood up and intended to pull Odin away from the fire. The sword slipped from his hand, hilt downwards. The king lost his footing and plunged forwards, and the sword pierced him through, and he was killed. Odin disappeared. And Agnar was then king for a long time afterwards.)
