Hús átti sér hættin
hress í garði þessum
(fekk strengjar þar Þungra)
Þéopista (sér vistar),
síz jarðar fjǫr firrðisk,
fránbaugs, s tók hána,
undins látrs, frá ítrum
endr Plácito, sendir.

 

The virtuous, energetic Theopista had a house in this orchard; {the Þungra of the ribbon} [WOMAN] settled there after {the distributor {of the ground {of the twisted shining ring of the earth}}}, [= Miðgarðsormr > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] the one who had once taken her from the glorious Placitus, left this life.
