ESk Run 10II/3 — prýddisk ‘was adorned’

Skark súðum sund
fyr sunnan Hrund;
mín prýddisk mund
við mildings fund.

Skark sund súðum fyr sunnan Hrund; mund mín prýddisk við fund mildings.

I cut the sea with ship-sides south of Runde; my hand was adorned at the meeting with the munificent one.


[3] mund mín prýddisk ‘my hand was adorned’: Suggests that the skald was rewarded by the king for the poem. Because of the content of ll. 3-4, Fidjestøl (1982, 155) believed that the st. was likely placed towards the end of the poem.
