Ív Sig 20II/4 — Vinða ‘of the Wends’

Hrauð ungr konungr        átta snekkjur
— vargr gein of val —        Vinða ferðar.
Hné fyr eggju        óþjóðar lið.

Ungr konungr hrauð átta snekkjur ferðar Vinða; vargr gein of val. Lið óþjóðar hné fyr eggju.

The young king cleared eight warships of the force of the Wends; the wolf gaped over carrion. The host of evildoers fell before the sword-edge.
