Tindr Hákdr 9I/4 — skeiðar ‘the warships’

Hrauð, en Hroptr of náði
hjaldrskýja val nýjum,
— þar vas lind* fyr landi —
leiðangr Dana skeiðar.

Leiðangr hrauð skeiðar Dana, en Hroptr hjaldrskýja of náði nýjum val; þar vas lind* fyr landi.

The fleet cleared the warships of the Danes, and the Hroptr <= Óðinn> of battle-clouds [SHIELDS > WARRIOR = Hákon] gained new carnage; a shield [defence] was placed off the coast there.
