Lögðu til
lítlu síðar
öðlings menn
Ósló bæjar,
ok þar stökk

á glapstíg
Grýtlinga lið.

Lítlu síðar lögðu menn öðlings til Ósló bæjar, ok þar stökk lið Grýtlinga á glapstíg fyr stálhvötuð.

A little later the lord’s men set out for the town of Oslo, and there the force of the Grýtlingar [= the Ribbungar] fled on a pernicious path before the sword-inciter [WARRIOR = Hákon].


[3] öðlings: lofðungs corrected to ‘odl[…]gs’ 8
