Anon (Fsk) 1I/1 — jarli ‘the jarl’

Gerðak jarli         ørr at vári;
þat vas mér þá títt         en þetta nú.

Gerðak jarli ørr at vári; þat vas mér þá títt, en þetta nú.

I gave the jarl a scar in the spring; that occupied me then, and this now.


[1] jarli ‘the jarl’: The implication of the prose of Fsk and Jvs is that this is Eiríkr Hákonarson of Hlaðir (Lade).
