Réð tolf vetr
tíri gǫfgaðr
Eirekr jarl
fyr Yggs mani,
áðr * lofðungr
ór landi fór
vestr of haf,
sás vini gœddi.

Eirekr jarl, gǫfgaðr tíri, réð tolf vetr fyr {mani Yggs}, áðr * lofðungr, sás gœddi vini, fór ór landi vestr of haf.

Eiríkr jarl, endowed with glory, ruled twelve years over {Yggr’s <= Óðinn’s> girl} [= Jǫrð (jǫrð ‘earth’)], before the lord, who enriched his friends, went from the land west across the sea.

Notes: [All]: Eiríkr left Norway before 1014 (see ÍF 27, xxv) after appointing his son, Hákon, regent. According to the chronology of Nkt, he left in 1012. He later joined his brother-in-law, Knútr inn ríki Sveinsson (Cnut the Great), in England. — [4] mani Yggs ‘Yggr’s <= Óðinn’s> girl [= Jǫrð (jǫrð ‘earth’)]’: See Note to st. 8/1, 2.
