Goð, firr ítran ættbœti allríks Torf-Einars meinum, en biðk trúra líkna dýrum tyggja.
God, keep the splendid kin-ennobler of all-powerful Torf-Einarr [= Þorfinnr] far from harms, and I ask true mercies for the precious prince.
[1, 2, 4] ættbœti allríks Torf-Einars ‘kin-ennobler of all-powerful Torf-Einarr [= Þorfinnr]’: Einarr, youngest son of Rǫgnvaldr Mœrajarl, enjoyed a long and successful rule in the Orkneys c. 900. Orkn ch. 7 explains that he gained his nickname ‘Turf’ or ‘Peat’ since he was the first to cut peat for fuel at Tarbatnes (Torfnes) (cf. Note on this p. n., st. 9/2, and Crawford 1987, 153 on peat-cutting). See also TorfE LvI and Anon (Hhárf) 1I.
