Anon Vitn 3VII/8 — af ‘of’

Rieð í ríki góðu
— ritning berr svá vitni —
kóngr, sá átti unga,
óttlauss, framadóttur.
ðiz upp með Fríði
falds á bernskualdri
svinnr í sögðu ríki
sveinn af kynslóð hreinni.

Óttlauss kóngr, sá átti unga framadóttur, rieð í góðu ríki; ritning berr svá vitni. Svinnr sveinn af hreinni kynslóð fæðiz upp á bernskualdri með Fríði falds í sögðu ríki.

A fearless king who had a young, outstanding daughter, ruled in a good realm; writing bears witness to that. A clever boy of pure lineage grows up in childhood with the Fríðr <goddess> of the head-dress [WOMAN] in the said realm.
