Anon Nkt 52II/5 — mun ‘will’

En biltrauðr
bæði lifði
ept Sigurð
sonr ok dóttir.
Þess mun enn
þokkum síðar
dóttir nefnd
Dœla hilmis.

En bæði lifði biltrauðr sonr ok dóttir ept Sigurð. Dóttir þess hilmis Dœla mun enn nefnd þokkum síðar.

But both a resolute son and a daughter survived Sigurðr. The daughter of that lord of the Dœlir [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr] will again be mentioned somewhat later.
