Meyjar bað men-Týr
mætrar, sá er fágætr,
hljótr fekk við hryggbrot
hásætrs vátar nætr;
krapti var ok konu sviptr
kauði, var hann þess trauðr;
slík gjǫraz mál mjó
mærðar í skaup færð.

Páter ertu ok princeps feiti,
prócussúl ertu svartra pússa,
rex heitir þú lifra ljóssa,
látprúðr ertu domnús húða,
preses ertu ok lofðungr lýsis,
leðrs kalla þik césarem allir,
mágister ertu maks ok leista,
margsvinnr ertu dúx fyr skinnum.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
