Sigvaldi hét seggja
ok réð þar fyr þegnum
Þorkell liði snjǫllu.
Búi var at hverjum hjaldri
harðráðr með Sigurði;
frágum, Vagn at væri
víst ofrhugi inn mesti.
Hǫfðingi snarfengra seggja hét Sigvaldi, ok Þorkell réð þar fyr þegnum, snjǫllu liði. Búi var harðráðr at hverjum hjaldri með Sigurði; frágum, at Vagn væri víst inn mesti ofrhugi.
‘The leader of the swift-acting men was called Sigvaldi, and Þorkell there commanded the men, the valiant troop. Búi was hard-ruling in every fight together with Sigurðr; we have heard that Vagn was certainly the most daring man. ’
