Hákg Lv 1I/3 — Hamðis ‘of Hamðir’

Vel launa mér mínir
menn — œxlum styr þenna —
— hríð vex Hamðis klæða —
hodd ok rekna brodda.

Menn mínir launa mér vel hodd ok rekna brodda; œxlum þenna styr; hríð klæða Hamðis vex.

My men repay me well for hoard and inlaid points; let’s intensify this conflict; the storm of the clothes of Hamðir <legendary hero> [MAIL-SHIRTS > BATTLE] is growing.


[3] Hamðis: ‘hamfðes’ FskAˣ, 52ˣ, 301ˣ
