Stefnir Lv 1I/5 — þanns ‘the one who’

Munkat nefna,         — nær munk stefna:
niðrbjúgt es nef         á níðingi —
þanns Svein konung         sveik ór landi
ok Tryggva son         á tálar dró.

Munkat nefna, þanns sveik Svein konung ór landi ok dró son Tryggva á tálar; munk stefna nær: nef á níðingi es niðrbjúgt.

I will not name the one who tricked King Sveinn from his realm and drew the son of Tryggvi [= Óláfr] into a trap; I will aim close: the nose on the traitor is down-curved.
