ESk Eystdr 2II/3 — af ‘by’

Mun, sás morði vanðisk,
margillr, ok sveik stilli,
síð af slíkum rôðum
Símun skalpr of hjalpask.

Margillr Símun skalpr, sás vanðisk morði ok sveik stilli, mun of hjalpask síð af slíkum rôðum.

The very wicked Símun skálpr (‘Sword-sheath’), who practised murder and betrayed the ruler, will be saved late by such actions.


[3] af: of FskAˣ
