En ungr konungr
öðrum sagði:
Seint kvað að telja
af Trönueyri
langhöfðuð skip
und líðöndum,
þau er íÖrvasund
útan fóru:
Tólf hundruð
tryggra manna;
þó er í Hátúnum
hálfu fleira,
víglið konungs;
ván erum rómu!   (eddic or germanic)

(The young king spoke to the others—
it would take time to count off Crane-bank
the long-necked ships beneath the sailors,
journeying outwards on the Orvasund:
‘Twelve hundred trusty men;
though in Highmeadow there’s twice as many,
the king’s war-troop; we may expect battle din.’
)
