Bjbp Jóms 20I/8 — frægr ‘famous’

Ok hǫfðingjar hraustir
heyra menn at væri
— þat hefr þjóð at minnum —
þrír með flokki hverjum,
þar er hreggviðir hittusk
hjálma skóðs á víðum
— fundr þótti sá fyrðum
frægr — Hjǫrungavági.

Ok menn heyra, at þrír hraustir hǫfðingjar væri með hverjum flokki — þjóð hefr þat at minnum —, þar er hjálma skóðs hreggviðir hittusk á víðum Hjǫrungavági; sá fundr þótti frægr fyrðum.

And men hear that three bold chieftains were with each troop — people hold that in memory —, where the trees of the storm of the harm of helmets [(lit. ‘storm-trees of the harm of helmets’) SWORD > BATTLE > WARRIORS] met in wide Liavågen; that meeting seemed famous to men.


[8] frægr: ‘fragr’ 53
