The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Heill skaltu, vísi,
virða njóta,
áttstafr Yngva,
ok una lífi
er þú fellt hefir
inn flugartrauða
jöfur, þann er olli
Ægis dauða.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Unscathed, prince, you’ll unleash men,
upholder of Yngvi’s line, and enjoy your life,
since you have brought low the king who scorns flight,
the one who dealt death to the dread-bringing man.
)
