Háði gramr
gunni á Fitjum
við Eireks
erfivǫrðu.
Varð í hǫnd
hilmir skotinn,
þás folkmeiðr
flótta knúði.

Gramr háði gunni á Fitjum við erfivǫrðu Eireks. Hilmir varð skotinn í hǫnd, þás {folkmeiðr} knúði flótta.

The lord fought a battle at Fitjar against Eiríkr’s heirs. The ruler was shot in the arm when {the battle-tree} [WARRIOR] chased those who fled.

Readings: [8] knúði: ‘knadí’ Flat

Notes: [All]: The battle of Fitjar (Stord, Norway) between Hákon and Eiríkr’s sons took place in 960 or 961. As the stories go, Hákon was either shot in the biceps by a servant of Gunnhildr, Eiríkr’s widow, or, alternatively, the injury was caused by Gunnhildr’s witchcraft. See Theodoricus (MHN 10), HN (MHN 107), Ágr (ÍF 29, 11), Fsk (ÍF 29, 93), HákgóðHkr (ÍF 26, 190-1). — [8] knúði ‘chased’: The reading of Flat, ‘knadí’, cannot be construed as an ON word, and must be a scribal error.
