Ólhv Hryn 1II/2 — tvennan ‘twice’

Mærir glǫddusk miklu ári
menn; báru þá ávǫxt tvennan
(veglig sýndisk) viðr ok fuglar
(vísa grein) á sumri einu.

Mærir menn glǫddusk miklu ári; viðr ok fuglar báru þá tvennan ávǫxt á einu sumri; grein vísa sýndisk veglig.

Illustrious men were gladdened by the great prosperity; trees and birds then produced offspring twice in one summer; the ruler’s circumstances appeared magnificent.


[2] tvennan: ‘uennan’ 42ˣ


[2] báru tvennan ávǫxt ‘produced offspring twice’: Lit. ‘bore two offspring’.
