Anon (Sv) 4II/6 — lengi ‘for a long time’

Mánadag kvaddi mildingr sína
menn; drifu hart til vápna sennu,
Inga hirð en upp réð ganga
ár morgin til Sverrisborgar.
Ýtar reistu merki at móti
margar stengr, ok bǫrðusk lengi;
Baglar stóðu í brodda hagli;
brunnu skip, þás kappar runnu.

Mánadag kvaddi mildingr menn sína; drifu hart til sennu vápna, en hirð Inga réð ganga upp til Sverrisborgar ár morgin. Ýtar reistu merki at móti, margar stengr, ok bǫrðusk lengi; Baglar stóðu í hagli brodda; skip brunnu, þás kappar runnu.

On Monday the generous one summoned his men; they gathered quickly to the quarrel of weapons [BATTLE], and Ingi’s retinue advanced up to Sverresborg early in the morning. People raised standards against them, many poles, and they fought for a long time; the Baglar stood in the hail of missiles [BATTLE]; ships burned when champions fled.
