En að Styrkleifum
Starkaðr konungr
en að Hlébjörgum
Hrollaugs synir;
þann sá ek gylfa
grimmúðgastan
er barðiz bolr,
var ábrot höfuð.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘And at Styr-cleft King Starkad,
and at Hlebiorg the sons of Hrollaug;
I saw that fiercest-minded of kings
defending his trunk—his head was gone.
