HSn Lv 1II/5 — frægri ‘the famous’

Glymvǫllu rístr gulli
(góðs stillis fǫr) Róða
Óláfssúð und auði
(auðgrimms) búin rauðu.
Nús œgr ór fǫr frægri
— fellr húfr í svig dúfu
svelldr — með sœmð ok mildi
siklingr kominn hingat.

Óláfssúð, búin rauðu gulli, rístr glymvǫllu Róða und auði; fǫr auðgrimms stillis [e]s góð. Nús œgr siklingr kominn hingat ór frægri fǫr með sœmð ok mildi; svelldr húfr fellr í svig dúfu.

Óláfssúð (‘Óláfr’s ship’), adorned with red gold, furrows the resounding field of Róði <sea-king> [SEA] bearing riches; the voyage of the wealth-fierce leader is good. Now the awe-inspiring lord has come here from the famous journey with glory and generosity; the bloated ship-side sinks into the curve of the billow.
