Eskál Vell 18I/2 — jarl ‘the jarl’

Enn reið ǫðru sinni
jarl borðmǫrum norðan;
sǫngherðir lét sverða
sótt Ragnfrøði at móti.

Enn reið jarl ǫðru sinni borðmǫrum norðan; sverða sǫngherðir lét sótt at móti Ragnfrøði.

Yet a second time the jarl rode the gunwale-horses [SHIPS] from the north; the strengthener of the song of swords [(lit. ‘song-strengthener of swords’) BATTLE > RULER] advanced to an encounter with Ragnfrøðr.
