GullásÞ Víðdr 1II/3 — Jóans ‘of Jón’

Hart ríðr hildar birti
hjalmrunnr í folkgunni
Jóans ættstuðill einart
allfróðr í styr þjóða.

Hjalmrunnr ríðr birti hildar hart í folkgunni, allfróðr ættstuðill Jóans, einart í styr þjóða.

The helmet-tree [WARRIOR] swings the brightness of battle [SWORD] hard in the pitched battle, the all-wise kin-pillar of Jón [= Víðkunnr], steadily, in the war of nations.


[3] Jóans ‘of Jón’: For the disyllabic form of this name, see Note to Anon (Mberf) 2/5.
