Anon Mey 40VII/6 — prúða ‘the beautiful’

Lofkennandi Lúcía önnur
líknar blóm var pínd í Róma;
Díocleciánus dygðarmeyjar
dáðugt hold í píslum þjáði.
Brennandi stóð blýfull panna;
brúði liet hann sitja prúða
dægur þrjú í logandi laugu;
lifði hun enn og giekk úr henni.

Önnur lofkennandi Lúcía, blóm líknar, var pínd í Róma; Díocleciánus þjáði dáðugt hold dygðarmeyjar í píslum. Blýfull panna stóð brennandi; hann liet prúða brúði sitja þrjú dægur í logandi laugu; hun lifði enn og giekk úr henni.

Another famous [lit. praise-showing] Lucy, a flower of mercy, was tormented in Rome; Diocletian tortured the valiant body of the virtuous maiden with torments. A pan full of lead stood burning; he made the beautiful woman sit for three days in the burning bath; she still lived on and walked out of it.
