Arn Hardr 17II/2 — snjallan ‘the wise’

Bœnir hefk fyr beini
bragna falls við snjallan
Girkja vǫrð ok Garða;
gjǫf launak svá jǫfri.

Hefk bœnir fyr beini falls bragna við snjallan vǫrð Girkja ok Garða; svá launak jǫfri gjǫf.

I raise up prayers for the dealer of warriors’ deaths [WARRIOR] to the wise guardian of the Greeks and of Russia (Garðar) [= God]; thus I repay the prince for his gift.


[2] snjallan: ‘snja[…]a’ W
