Hókr Eirfl 2I/6 — krafða ‘summoned’

Eyna fór ok einu
(unnviggs) konungr sunnan
(sverð rauð mætr at morði
meiðr) sjau tøgum skeiða,
þás húnlagar hreina
hafði jarl of krafða
— sætt gekk seggja ættar
sundr — Skônunga fundar.

Konungr Eyna fór sunnan sjau tøgum skeiða ok einu — mætr meiðr unnviggs rauð sverð at morði —, þás jarl hafði of krafða hreina húnlagar fundar Skônunga; sætt ættar seggja gekk sundr.

The king of the Eynir [NORWEGIAN KING = Óláfr] went from the south with seventy-one warships — the splendid tree of the wave-steed [SHIP > SEAFARER] reddened the sword at the battle —, when the jarl [Eiríkr] had summoned the reindeer of the mast-top-liquid [SEA > SHIPS] to a meeting with the Skánungar; the peace of the kin of men was sundered.


[6] krafða: ‘skræfðan’ FskBˣ, 51ˣ, 302ˣ, krafðan FskAˣ, 310
