Mund galt ek mærri,
meiðma fjölð þiggja,
þræla þrjá tögu,
þýjar sjau góðar;
sæmð var að slíku,
silfr var þó meira. (eddic or germanic)
( ‘I paid a bride-price for a splendid lady, gave a great deal of treasure,
thirty slaves and seven good slave-women
—it was honourable to do so—there was even more silver.
