Þjóð Yt 13I/4 — standa ‘overtook’

Knátti endr

Ok þrálífr

Ok sveiðurs

liggjandi drakk.
Máttit hárr

Ánasótt knátti endr of standa Aun at Uppsǫlum. Ok þrálífr skyldi þiggja ǫðru sinni alað jóðs. Ok hverfði at sér inn mjávara hlut mækis sveiðurs, es rjóðr ôttunga drakk liggjandi odd lǫgðis okhreins. Hárr austrkonungr máttit of halda upp mæki hjarðar.

Decrepitude long ago overtook Aunn at Uppsala. And the one tenacious of life had to receive the food of an infant a second time. And he turned the narrower part of the sword of the bull [HORN] toward himself when the reddener of kinsmen [= Aunn] drank lying down [from] the tip of the sword of the yoke-reindeer [BULL > HORN]. The grey-haired eastern king could not hold up the sword of the bull [HORN].
