Arn Hardr 10II/3 — á ‘in’

Uppgǫngu bauð yngvi
ítr með helming lítinn,
sás á sinni ævi
sásk aldrigi háska.
Enn of England sunnan
ǫflugr herr at berjask
fór við fylki dýran;
fundusk þeir af stundu.

Ítr yngvi, sás aldrigi á ævi sinni sásk háska, bauð uppgǫngu með lítinn helming. Enn ǫflugr herr fór sunnan of England at berjask við dýran fylki; þeir fundusk af stundu.

The splendid prince, he who never in his life feared danger, commanded the advance ashore with a small force. But a mighty army marched from the south through England to fight the excellent sovereign; they engaged at once.


[3] á sinni ævi: sinni á ævi Flat
