Eyv Hák 3I/7 — Ey ‘of Island’

Hét á Háleygi         sems á Holmrygi
jarla einbani;         fór til orrostu.
Gótt hafði inn gjǫfli         gengi Norðmanna
œgir Eydana;         stóð und árhjalmi.

Einbani jarla hét á Háleygi sems á Holmrygi; fór til orrostu. Inn gjǫfli œgir Eydana hafði gótt gengi Norðmanna; stóð und árhjalmi.

The sole slayer of jarls [= Hákon] called on the Háleygir just as on the Hólmrygir; he went into battle. The munificent terrifier of Island-Danes [= Hákon] had the good support of the Norwegians; he stood under a helmet of metal.


[7] Eydana: eyðanna FskAˣ
