Anon Nkt 55II/12 — bróðir ‘brother’

Þat veit hverr,
at Haraldr gilli
vas samfast
sex vetr konungr,
áðr * lofðung
af lífdǫgum
tóku fyrðar.
Sás at Krists
kirkju jarðaðr
í Bjǫrgyn
bróðir jǫfra.

Hverr veit þat, at Haraldr gilli vas konungr sex vetr samfast, áðr * fyrðar tóku lofðung af lífdǫgum tírarlaust. Sá bróðir jǫfra [e]s jarðaðr at Kristskirkju í Bjǫrgyn.

Everyone knows that Haraldr gilli (‘Servant’) was king continuously for six years before men deprived that lord of his life without glory. That brother of princes is buried in Kristkirken in Bergen.
