Anon Nkt 67II/6 — Jóan ‘to Jón’

Hét * dǫglings
dóttir Þóra;
sú vas gipt
gǫfgum manni.
Allra helzt,
sús Jóan fœddi,
vas sonsæl
systir jǫfra.

* Dóttir dǫglings hét Þóra; sú vas gipt gǫfgum manni. Systir jǫfra, sús fœddi Jóan, vas allra helzt sonsæl.

The daughter of the monarch was called Þóra; she was married to a noble man. The sister of princes who gave birth to Jón was above all son-blessed.


[6] Jóan ‘Jón’: For the disyllabic, early form of this name, see ANG §359.2.
