Anon (Mberf) 4II/2 — breiði ‘arsed’

Allengi dvelr Ingi
ofanreið inn þjóbreiði.

Inn þjóbreiði Ingi dvelr ofanreið allengi.

The broad-arsed Ingi delays his descent overly long.


[2] inn þjóbreiði ‘the broad-arsed’: Inn stjǫlbreiði ‘the broad-arsed’ (so FskAˣ) is also a possible reading but must be a scribal innovation.
