The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Þar sitr Sigurðr
sveita stokkinn,
Fáfnis hjarta
við funa steikir;
spakr þætti mér
spillir bauga
ef hann fjörsega
fránan æti.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘There sits Sigurd, splattered with blood,
roasting Fafnir’s heart on the fire;
the destroyer of rings would seem wise to me*
if he were to eat the shining life-muscle.’
)
