Arn Hryn 19II/2 — inndrótt ‘personal troop’

Eyðendr, fregnk, at elska þjóðir
inndrótt þín es hǫfð at minnum —
grœði lostins goði it næsta
geima Vals í þessum heimi.

Fregnk, at þjóðir elska eyðendr Vals geima, lostins grœði, it næsta goði í þessum heimi; inndrótt þín es hǫfð at minnum.

I hear that people love the clearer of the Valr <horse> of the ocean [SHIP > SEA-WARRIOR], lashed by the swell, next after God in this world; your personal troop is held in memory.


[2] inndrótt: en drótt Flat
