Gekk Hlórriði,
greipá stafni,
vatt með austri
upp lögfáki
einn með árum
ok með austskotu,
bar hann til bæjar
brimsvín jötuns,
ok holtriða
hver í gegnum.   (eddic or germanic)

(Hlorridi went forward and gripped the prow,
alone he lifted the sea-stallion with its bilge-water,
with oars and bailer;
he brought the giant’s sea-pigs home to the farm,*
through the hollow in the wooded ridge.
)
