En þær skálar
er und skörum vóru
sveip ek útan silfri
senda ek Níðaði
en ór augum
jarknasteina
senda ek kunnigri
kván Níðaðar.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘And their skulls which were under their hair,
I chased with silver, sent them to Nidud:
and the precious stones from the eyes,
I sent to Nidud’s cunning wife;
)
