ESk Run 3II/8 — ǫðlingr ‘the prince’

Vann siklingr sótt
við snarpa drótt
— leyfðs lýðum bær —
Leikbergi nær.
Renir flýðu ríkt
ok reiddu slíkt,
— ǫld festi auð —
sem ǫðlingr bauð.

Siklingr vann sótt nær Leikbergi við snarpa drótt; leyfðs bær lýðum. Renir flýðu ríkt ok reiddu slíkt, sem ǫðlingr bauð; ǫld festi auð.

The ruler fought close to Leikbjǫrg with his brave retinue; praise must be spread among men. The Renir fled in force and paid out what the prince exacted; people promised riches.


[8] ǫðlingr: siklingr Hr
