Hskv Útkv 1II/8 — bana ‘death’

Varð fyr stafni        styrjargjǫrnum
friðraskaði        Forminterra.
Þar varð eggjar        ok eld þola
blámanna lið,        áðr bana fengi.

Forminterra varð fyr stafni styrjargjǫrnum friðraskaði. Þar varð lið blámanna þola eggjar ok eld, áðr fengi bana.

Formentera appeared before the prow of the battle-eager peace-disturber [WARRIOR]. There the troop of dark men had to suffer sword-blades and fire before they met death.
