En Hlórriði,
er að höndum kom,
brátt lét bresta
brattstein gleri;
sló hann sitjandi
súlur í gögnum;
báru þó heilan
fyr Hymi síðan.   (eddic or germanic)

(And quickly Thor, when he laid hands on it,
smashed through the towering stone with the glass;
sitting, he slung it through the columns;
they carried it whole back to Hymir.
)
