Hirði hann hafra
horngöfgasta;
hurfu að höllu
er Hymir átti.
Mögr fann ömmu,
mjök leiða sér,
hafði höfða
hundruð níu.   (eddic or germanic)

(He secured their goats with splendid horns,*
they headed for the hall which Hymir owned.
The lad found his grandmother, very ugly she seemed to him,*
nine hundred heads she had;
)
