Anon Nkt 50II/1 — Réð ‘ruled’

Réð ágætr
ok ellifu
sextán vetr
Sigurðr fyr ríki,
áðr mannskœð
Mœra dróttins
brygði lífi.

Ágætr Sigurðr réð fyr ríki sextán ok ellifu vetr, áðr mannskœð banasótt brygði lífi dróttins Mœra.

Splendid Sigurðr ruled the realm sixteen and eleven years before a man-harming, deadly disease ended the life of the lord of the Mœrir [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr].
