Gaf gǫrpum sínum goll it rauða
hilmir hróðigr ok hringa marga,
brynjur bjartar ok branda hvassa,
skjǫldu skyggða ok skrautbúna.
Hróðigr hilmir gaf gǫrpum sínum it rauða goll ok marga hringa, bjartar brynjur ok hvassa branda, skyggða ok skrautbúna skjǫldu.
‘The glorious ruler gave his champions red gold and many rings, bright mail-shirts and keen blades, shining and richly-decorated shields. ’
As for st. 1.
Cf. Þjóð Harkv 16, 19 on Haraldr’s munificence.
