Anon (Gautr) 1VIII (Gautr 8)/3 — nökkru ‘somewhat’

Ráð þykki mér         Refnefs vera
nökkru verri,         en Neri kendi.
Varpat sínu         á sæ féi
Gautrekr, er gaf         gullhring Refi.

Ráð Refnefs þykki mér vera nökkru verri, en Neri kendi. Gautrekr varpat féi sínu á sæ, er gaf gullhring Refi.

Refnefr’s advice seems to me somewhat worse than [what] Neri gave. Gautrekr did not cast his wealth into the sea when he gave Refr a gold ring.
