Valg Har 1II/2 — lǫnd ‘lands’

Skilfingr, helzt, þars skulfu
skeiðr, fyr lǫnd in breiðu
— auð varð suðr of síðir
Sikiley — liði miklu.

Skilfingr, helzt miklu liði fyr in breiðu lǫnd, þars skeiðr skulfu; suðr varð Sikiley of síðir auð.

Lord, you led a large host past the wide lands where warships shook; in the south Sicily was finally laid waste.


[2] lǫnd in breiðu: land it breiða U
