As st. 1 above.

[5-8]: The F variant of the second helmingr can be rendered as follows: Sóknfúss siklingr Þrœnda klauf sundr herskriptr; jǫfurr, hǫlfu hæri gipta an Magnúsi fekksk þér ‘the war-eager ruler of the Þrœndir cleft asunder the painted shields; prince, twice as much luck as [was given to] Magnús was given to you.’ The verb fásk ‘be given’ can be construed with nom. and dat. (gipta fekksk þér ‘luck was given to you’; so F) or impersonally with dat. of person and gen. of the object (fekksk þér giptu ‘you were given luck’; so Mork).
