Hitt vas auk, at eykir

dróttinn fund of sótti.

Hitt vas auk, at eykir aurborðs runnu norðan und svinnum sigrunni sunnr á vit Danmarkar. Ok valdr Hǫrða, dróttinn Dofra, of faldinn hjalmi holmfjǫturs, of sótti fund danskra jǫfra.

It also happened that the draught-animals of the plank [SHIPS] ran from the north under the wise victory-tree [WARRIOR] south towards Denmark. And the ruler of the Hǫrðar [NORWEGIAN RULER = Hákon jarl], the lord of the Dofrar [NORWEGIAN RULER = Hákon jarl], wearing the helmet of the island-fetter [= Miðgarðsormr], sought a meeting with the Danish rulers.
