Anon Nkt 25II/1 — lǫnd ‘lands’

Talði lǫnd
ok lausafé
sína eign
Sveinn ok Hôkon,
ok tvá vetr
at tali fyrða
Eireks arf
jarlar hǫfðu,
áðr í land
með lítinn her
kœmi vestan,
ok Óláfr
jarli mœtti
í Sauðungs
sundi miðju.

Sveinn ok Hôkon talði lǫnd ok lausafé eign sína, ok tvá vetr, at tali fyrða, hǫfðu jarlar arf Eireks, áðr konungmaðr, með lítinn her, kœmi í land vestan, ok Óláfr mœtti jarli í miðju Sauðungssundi.

Sveinn and Hákon declared lands and loose chattel their property, and for two years, according to people’s reckoning, the jarls held Eiríkr’s inheritance, before a royal claimant, with a small army, came to the country from the west, and Óláfr met the jarl in the middle of Sauesund.
