Ok hofgylðir svalg hræ Ôleifs við vág, †hinn es viðjar†. Ok glóðfjalgr sonr Fornjóts leysti gǫrvar af jǫfri Svía. Sá áttkonr kyns lofða hvarf frá Uppsǫlum fyr lǫngu.

And the temple-wolf [FIRE] swallowed the corpse of Óláfr near the bay, †...†. And the ember-hot son of Fornjótr <giant> [FIRE] loosed the clothes from the ruler of the Swedes. That descendant of the kindred of rulers [KINGS > KING] disappeared from Uppsala long ago.

readings

[2] †hinn es viðjar† (‘hinn er viðiar’): ‘vidar’ F, hinn er er viðjar J1ˣ

notes

[2] hinn es viðjar ‘…’: Despite several suggestions as to the best way to complete this poorly transmitted (unmetrical) line, one must concur with Åkerlund (1939, 110), ÍF 26 and Wessén (Yng 1952, 73) that it is impossible to arrive at an acceptable solution.

grammar

Pronouns and determiners: Definite article

The definite article is normally suffixed to nouns, except in some cases where it is used with an adjective. If the noun form ends in a vowel, the 'i' in the article is dropped. If the noun form ends in 'um', the 'm' and 'i' are both dropped. E.g. hesta (acc. pl.) > hestana (acc. pl. definite); hestum (dat. pl.) > hestunum (dat. pl. definite)
