Kómum at eyju
útan brattri
sumar síðla;
þá var segl rifat.
Gerðu fyrðar
flestir allir
skipum til hlunns
skjótt at ráða.

 

We arrived late in the summer at the steep island; then the sail was reefed. Almost all the men quickly set about pulling up the ships onto rollers.

notes: [1-2]: These lines are exactly the same as Ǫrv 76/5-6, where the island concerned is Grímr loðinkinni’s home of Hrafnista. No name is given in the prose text to the island where Oddr and his companions make land after their adventures among the Saami and Permians, although in 7 Oddr is reported as saying (Ǫrv 1888, 39) that it must be in Giantland (Risaland).
