En Sæmundr
sína vissi
Sigfúss sonr
snilli jafnan
faðir Lopts,
sás firum þótti
hǫfuðsmaðr
við hluti alla.

 

But Sæmundr, Sigfúss’s son, always showed his prowess, {Loptr’s father}, [= Sæmundr] who seemed to people a leader in all respects.

notes: Sæmundr Sigfússon (1054/6-1133) was one of the most learned men in Iceland in his day. He studied in France (or the Rhineland; see Foote 1975, 67-70) and returned to Iceland in 1076. He was a priest and presumably the founder of the school at Oddi. See Halldór Hermannsson 1932b.
