Anon Sól 63VII/6 — byrðar ‘burdens’

Menn sá ek þá,        er mörgum hlutum
        véltu um annars eign;
flokkum þeir fóru        til Fégjarns borgar
        ok höfðu byrðar af blýi.

Ek sá menn þá, er véltu um eign annars mörgum hlutum; þeir fóru flokkum til borgar Fégjarns ok höfðu byrðar af blýi.

I saw men then, who had defrauded another of property in many things; they travelled in crowds to Fégjarn’s fortress, and carried burdens of lead.
