ÞKolb Eirdr 17I/3 — Gera ‘of Geri’

Óð, en œrnu náði
íms sveit Freka hveiti,
Gera ǫlðra naut gylðir —
Gjalpar stóð í blóði.

Stóð Gjalpar óð í blóði, en sveit íms náði œrnu hveiti Freka; gylðir naut ǫlðra Gera.

The stud-horses of Gjǫlp <giantess> [WOLVES] waded in blood, and the company of the wolf [WOLVES] gained plentiful wheat of Freki <wolf> [CORPSES]; the wolf enjoyed the ales of Geri <wolf> [BLOOD].
