Arn Hardr 6II/2 — Eydana ‘of Island-Danes’

Eymðit ráð við Rauma
reiðr Eydana meiðir;
heit dvínuðu Heina;
hyrr gerði þá kyrra.

Reiðr meiðir Eydana eymðit ráð við Rauma; heit Heina dvínuðu; hyrr gerði þá kyrra.

The wrathful harmer of Island-Danes [= Haraldr] did not soften his treatment of the Raumar; the threats of the Heinir fell away; fire made them quiet.


[2] Eydana: ‘eyda...’ 744ˣ


[2] meiðir Eydana ‘harmer of Island-Danes’: The Danes of the islands of Sjælland (Selund, Zealand), Falster (Falstr), Fyn (Fjón) and other smaller islands. See also Mark Eirdr 22/8.
