GunnLeif Merl I 43VIII (Bret 111)/6 — gǫfgaðr ‘endued’

‘Vera mun* ára         í aga miklum
fimtán tigi         foldar belti.
En tírœð         tíri gǫfgaðr
hundruð þrjú         hann mun sitja
Lundúnum at         ok lýða fjǫlð.

‘Belti foldar mun* vera í miklum aga fimtán tigi ára. En hann mun sitja at Lundúnum þrjú hundruð tírœð gǫfgaðr tíri, ok fjǫlð lýða.

‘The belt of the earth [SNAKE] will be in great strife for fifteen decades. But for three hundred years, counted decimally, he will reign in London, endued with glory, and a multitude of people [with him].
