Anon (Heiðr) 8VIII (Heiðr 89)/2 — Heiðreks ‘Heiðrekr’s’

Hlöðr reið austan,         Heiðreks arfi;
kom hann at garði,         þar er Gotar byggja,
á Árheima         arfs at kveðja;
þar drakk Angantýr         erfi Heiðreks *.

Hlöðr reið austan, arfi Heiðreks; hann kom at garði, þar er Gotar byggja, at kveðja arfs á Árheima; þar drakk Angantýr erfi Heiðreks *.

Hlǫðr rode from the east, Heiðrekr’s heir; he came to the court where the Goths live, to ask for his inheritance at Árheimar; there Angantýr was drinking Heiðrekr’s wake.


[2] Heiðreks arfi: so 203ˣ, ‘Heid[…]’ 2845
