Sigv Tryggfl 1I/2 — af ‘from’

Tíreggjaðr fór Tryggvi
— tóksk morð af því — norðan,
en Sveinn konungr sinni
sunnan ferð at gunni.
Nær vask þausnum þeira;
þat bar skjótt at móti;
herr týnði þar harða
— hjǫrgǫll vas þá — fjǫrvi.

Tíreggjaðr Tryggvi fór norðan, en Sveinn konungr ferð sinni sunnan at gunni; morð tóksk af því. Vask nær þausnum þeira; þat bar skjótt at móti; herr týnði þar harða fjǫrvi; hjǫrgǫll vas þá.

Urged on to glory, Tryggvi went from the north, while King Sveinn [went] with his troop from the south to the battle; killing arose from that. I was near their tumult; that swiftly resulted in an encounter; the army lost life there in great numbers; there was sword-clanging then.
