Valg Har 4II/1 — bautt ‘you ordered’

Helmingi bautt hanga,
hilmis kundr, af stundu;
skipt hafið ér, svát eptir
eru Væringjar færi.

Kundr hilmis, bautt helmingi hanga af stundu; ér hafið skipt, svát færi Væringjar eru eptir.

Descendant of a ruler [RULER = Haraldr], you ordered the unit to be hanged at once; you have acted in such a way that fewer Varangians are left.


[1] bautt (‘bauð þú’): ‘bouttu’ FskAˣ


[1] bautt hanga ‘ordered to be hanged’: For the construction bjóða plus inf., see LP: bjóða 3.
