Ganga fimmtán
fólk upp áland,
þó er íSogn út
sjau þúsundir,
liggja hér ígrindum
fyr Gnipalundi
brimdýr blásvört
ok búin gulli.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Fifteen companies came on shore;
yet out in Sogn there are seven thousand,
pulled up by the palisade before Gnipalund,
dark-coloured surf-beasts all decked with gold.
