Oddhríðar fór eyða

logfágandi lœgis
land Valdamars brandi.
Aldeigju brauzt, œgir

Oddhríðar lœgis logfágandi fór síðan eyða land Valdamars brandi; hríð óx at þat. Brauzt Aldeigju, œgir gumna; skil numnask oss; sú hildr varð hǫrð með hauldum; komt austr í Garða.

The custodian of the flame of the sea of the point-storm [(lit. ‘flame-custodian of the sea of the point-storm’) BATTLE > BLOOD > SWORD > WARRIOR] went afterwards to ravage Vladimir’s land with the sword; the onslaught intensified at that. You crushed Staraya Ladoga, intimidator of men [RULER]; sound information is being brought to us [me]; that battle became hard amongst freeholders; you came eastwards into Russia.
