Anon Sól 2VII/6 — af ‘from’

Einn hann át,        opt, harðliga;
        aldri bauð hann manni til matar,
áðr en móðr        ok meginlítill
        gestr gangandi af götu kom.

Hann át einn, opt, harðliga; hann bauð aldri manni til matar, áðr en móðr ok meginlítill gestr kom gangandi af götu.

He ate alone, often, sternly; he never invited anyone for a meal, before a weary, exhausted stranger came walking from the road.


[6] af götu: at garði 155aˣ, um götu 2797ˣ
