Arn Þorfdr 2II/3 — ræsir ‘the ruler’

Orms felli drakk allan
alkostigr fen hrosta
— rausn drýgði þá ræsir
Rǫgnvalds niðr í gǫgnum.

Alkostigr niðr Rǫgnvalds drakk fen hrosta í gǫgnum allan felli orms; ræsir drýgði þá rausn.

The excellent descendant of Rǫgnvaldr [= Þorfinnr] drank the swamp of malt [ALE] through all the serpent’s slayer [WINTER]; the ruler practised bounty then.


[3] ræsir: so R702ˣ, 325III β, 743ˣ, ræsis 332ˣ, 48ˣmarg
