Anon Nkt 28II/4 — digri ‘digri (‘the Stout’)’

Fekk lofsæll
land með hringum
Óláfr einn
allt inn digri.
Réð hróðmǫgr
Haralds ins grenska
fimtán vetr
foldu grýttri.

Lofsæll Óláfr inn digri fekk einn allt land með hringum. Hróðmǫgr Haralds ins grenska réð grýttri foldu fimtán vetr.

The glorious Óláfr inn digri (‘the Stout’) alone received the entire land from border to border. The glory-son of Haraldr inn grenski (‘the one from Grenland’) [= Óláfr] ruled the rocky ground for fifteen years.


[4] inn digri ‘(“the Stout”)’: This was Óláfr Haraldsson’s (S. Óláfr’s) nickname.
