The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Fátt mantu, fylkir,
fornra spjalla
er þú öðlingum
ósönnu bregðr!
Þú hefir etnar
úlfa krásir
ok bræðr þínum
að bana orðið.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Little must you recall, lord, the old stories,
when you taunt the princes with untruths;
you have eaten wolves’ corpse-leavings
and were the slayer of your brother,
often you’ve sucked wounds with a cold snout;
hated everywhere, you’ve slunk into a stone-tip.’*)
