ESk Sigdr I 1II/7 — af ‘off’

Vásǫflugr réð vísi
vestr helmingi mestum;
óð at ensku láði
ægis marr und harra.
Stôl lét hilmir hvílask
heiptglaðr ok vas þaðra
(né gramr af Val Vimrar)
vetrlengis (stígr betri).

Vásǫflugr vísi réð vestr mestum helmingi; marr ægis óð at ensku láði und harra. Heiptglaðr hilmir lét stôl hvílask ok vas þaðra vetrlengis; né stígr betri gramr af Val Vimrar.

The tireless leader went west with the largest unit; the horse of the ocean [SHIP] advanced toward the English land beneath the lord. The war-happy prince let the prows rest and was there all winter long; a better ruler will not step off a Valr <horse> of Vimur <river> [SHIP].
