Dró djarfliga
dáðrakkr Þórr
orm eitrfán
upp að borði,
hamri kníði
háfjall skarar
of ljótt ofan
úlfs hnitbróður.   (eddic or germanic)

(Then very bravely Thor, doer of great deeds,
pulled the poison-gleaming serpent up on board.
With his hammer he violently struck, from above
the hideous one, the wolf’s intimate-brother’s head.*
)
