Ótt Hfl 8I/2 — þorinn ‘daring’

Enn brauzt, éla kennir
Yggs gunnþorinn, bryggjur
(linns hefr lǫnd at vinna)
Lundúna (þér snúnat).
Hǫfðu hart of krafðir
— hildr óx við þat — skildir
gang, en gamlir sprungu
gunnþinga járnhringar.

Gunnþorinn kennir éla Yggs, brauzt enn bryggjur Lundúna; hefr snúnat þér at vinna lǫnd linns. Skildir, hart of krafðir, hǫfðu gang, en gamlir járnhringar gunnþinga sprungu; hildr óx við þat.

Battle-daring master of the storms of Yggr <= Óðinn> [BATTLES > WARRIOR], you further broke the wharves of London; it has turned out for you to win the lands of the serpent [GOLD]. Shields, hard pressed, had movement, and old iron-rings of battle-meetings [MAIL-SHIRTS] sprang apart; battle increased at that.


[2] ‑þorinn: ‑róinn 61
