Anon (TGT) 14III l. 2

barði — with the prow


barð (noun n.): prow, stern (of a ship)



[1] barði (dat. sg.) ‘with the prow’: Barð was frequently used to refer to a ship pars pro toto (cf. Jesch 2001a, 148-50). The metaphor of ploughing here, however, is more suggestive of the prow cutting through the sea.
