Eskál Vell 35I/4 — tafni ‘the prey’

Fjallvǫnðum gaf fylli,
(fullr varð) en spjǫr gullu,
herstefnandi hrǫfnum
(hrafn á ylgjar tafni).

Herstefnandi gaf fjallvǫnðum hrǫfnum fylli, en spjǫr gullu; hrafn varð fullr á tafni ylgjar.

The army-summoner [RULER] gave the mountain-accustomed ravens their fill, and spears resounded; the raven was sated on the prey of the she-wolf [CORPSE].


[4] tafni: ‘tanni’



case: dat.
