Anon Nkt 14II/2 — bana ‘his death’

Þat hykk brátt
til bana leiddi
lítit sár
lǫfðung snaran.
Þars ávallt,
es vísir dó,
hella kennd
til Hôkonar.

Hykk þat lítit sár leiddi snaran lǫfðung brátt til bana. Þar, es vísir dó, [e]s hella ávallt kennd til Hôkonar.

I believe that little wound led the keen lord quickly to his death. There, where the leader died, a flat rock is forever named after Hákon.
