Anon Nkt 24II/4 — ræsir ‘the ruler’

Þá vas úfr
Eireks skorinn,
áðr * Rómfǫr
ræsir hœfi,
ok blóðrôs
til bana leiddi
vitran jarl
vestr með Englum.

Þá vas úfr Eireks skorinn, áðr * ræsir hœfi Rómfǫr, ok blóðrôs leiddi vitran jarl til bana vestr með Englum.

Then Eiríkr’s uvula was cut, before the ruler could embark on a journey to Rome, and blood-loss led the wise jarl to his death in the west among the English.
