ÞjóðA Sex 8II/2 — lét ‘had’

Ok hertoga hneykir
herfingnum lét stinga
— leyfð berk hans — ór hǫfði
haugs skundaði augu.

Ok hneykir hertoga lét stinga augu ór hǫfði herfingnum skundaði haugs; berk leyfð hans.

And the confounder of war-leaders [RULER] had the eyes stabbed out of the head of the war-captured impeller of the mound [GENEROUS RULER]; I proffer a eulogy of him [Haraldr].


[2] lét stinga: ‘l[...]a’ B, lét stinga 744ˣ
