Ár valtívar
veiðar námu
ok sumblsamir
áðr saðir yrði;
hristu teina
ok áhlaut sá,
fundu þeir að Ægis
örkost hvera.   (eddic or germanic)

(In bygone days the slaughter-gods had a good bag from hunting,
they were keen to drink before they got enough;
they shook the twigs and looked at the augury,*
they found that at Ægir’s was an ample choice of cauldrons.
