Sturl Hrafn 7II/2 — viðþingaðr ‘assembly-convener’

Helt inn hraðmælti
hringa viðþingaðr
leiðir lögskíðum
leygs í Suðreyjar.
Upp gaf alkeppnum
Engus herfengna
Íl fyr ítrbóla
eyði dalreyðar.

Inn hraðmælti viðþingaðr hringa helt lögskíðum leiðir leygs í Suðreyjar. Engus gaf upp herfengna Íl fyr alkeppnum eyði ítrbóla dalreyðar.

The quick-spoken assembly-convener of swords [WARRIOR] brought the sea-skis [SHIPS] on the paths of the ocean to the Hebrides. Angus surrendered Islay, captured in battle, on account of the very vigorous spoiler of the splendid lair of the valley-char [SNAKE > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN].


[2] viðþingaðr: vígþingaðr 8, virðingu Flat
