Anon Pl 22VII/6 — tti ‘could’

Dýr leit fróns it frána
fleinrjóðr koma at sveini,
— hryggr varð við þat harða
hann — en vargr tók annan;
ok baugfergir bjarga
brátt hvôrungi tti,
dýr þás dyggva hlýra
drógu braut til skógar.

Fleinrjóðr leit it frána dýr fróns koma at sveini, en vargr tók annan; hann varð harða hryggr við þat; ok baugfergir tti hvôrungi bjarga brátt, þás dýr drógu dyggva hlýra braut til skógar.

The spear-reddener [WARRIOR] saw the fierce animal of the land approach the boy, and a wolf took the other one; he became very distraught at that; and the ring-destroyer [GENEROUS MAN] could save neither of them quickly [enough], as the beasts dragged the excellent brothers away to the wood.
