Eskál Vell 20I/3 — at ‘to’

Búinn lézk valdr, ef vildi
valmey konungr heyja,
haulda morðs at halda
— herr fell of gram — velli.

Valdr morðs haulda lézk búinn at halda velli, ef konungr vildi heyja valmey; herr fell of gram.

The controller of the killing of men [BATTLE > RULER = Hákon jarl] declared himself ready to hold the field, if the king [Ragnfrøðr] wanted to wage the maiden of the battle-slain [VALKYRIE = Hildr (hildr ‘battle’)]; the host fell around the ruler.


[3] at: ok 51ˣ, 302ˣ, FskAˣ, 52ˣ, 301ˣ
