The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Höfði skemmra
láti hann þann inn hrímkalda jötun
ok af baugum búa;
þá mundu fjár
þess er Fáfnir réð
einvaldi vera.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Shorter by a head he should leave the frost-cold giant*
and make him lose the rings;
then the treasure which Fafnir owned
would be in one man’s control.’
)
