Enn bað ungra manna
ítr gramr fira samna
fljótt, ef fámeðr þœttisk
ferð, Plácitus verða.
Svinns kómu þá seima
sendis heim (né kenndi
hyrjar lunda) at hǫndum
(haukláðs) synir báðir.

Ítr gramr bað enn fira samna fljótt ferð ungra manna, ef Plácitus þœttisk verða fámeðr. Báðir {synir {svinns sendis seima}} kómu þá heim at hǫndum; né kenndi {lunda {hyrjar {haukláðs}}}.

The glorious king then asked the men to gather quickly a troop of young men, if Plácitus found himself short of men. Both {sons {of the wise distributor of gold}} [GENEROUS MAN > = Agapitus and Theopistus] then came home to him [lit. to his hands]; he did not recognise {the trees {of the fire {of the hawk-ground}}} [ARM > GOLD > MEN].
