Várum allir
vestr með Skolla;
þar at landi sat
lýða dróttinn.
Báru bragnar
blóðgar undir,
sverðum skornar,
en vér sigr höfðum.

 

We were all in the west with Skolli; there {the lord of men} [RULER = Játmundr] ruled over the land. Warriors bore bloody wounds, cut with swords, but we had the victory.

notes: The substance of this stanza corresponds to the second helmingr of Ǫrv 44 and an episode in the prose saga in which Oddr and Hjálmarr encounter a viking named Skolli during an expedition to England (Ǫrv 1888, 84-7). In the saga this episode occurs after an adventure in Ireland, in which Ásmundr is killed, and after Oddr’s meeting with the Irish woman Ǫlvǫr, who makes Oddr a protective magic shirt (see Ǫrv 4 and 111).
