HSt Rst 3I/4 — mildum ‘the generous’

Senn ǫll síðan runnu
snekkjubǫrð ór Gǫrðum
hermǫrg hôla tǫrguð
hildings und gram mildum.
Vestrlǫnd, virða kindir,
verfôkum lét herjat
aldyggr arfi Tryggva
Óláfr, ok klauf stôlum.

Síðan runnu hermǫrg snekkjubǫrð hildings, hôla tǫrguð, ǫll senn ór Gǫrðum und mildum gram. Aldyggr arfi Tryggva, Óláfr, lét herjat vestrlǫnd verfôkum, ok klauf kindir virða stôlum.

Then a great many ship-stems of the prince, splendidly equipped with shields, sped from Russia all at the same time, under the generous ruler. The most excellent heir of Tryggvi [= Óláfr], Óláfr, harried the western lands with sea-steeds [SHIPS] and slashed the sons of men with steel weapons.
