Ív Sig 23II/2 — af ‘from’

Vann leyfðr konungr        af liði Þóris
þríu skip hroðin        í þeiri fǫr.
Settu undan        Óláfs liðar,
þeirs ór Elfi        eltir vôru.

Leyfðr konungr vann hroðin þríu skip af liði Þóris í þeiri fǫr. Liðar Óláfs, þeirs vôru eltir ór Elfi, settu undan.

The celebrated king cleared three ships from Þórir’s troop on that expedition. Óláfr’s companions, who had been chased out of the Götaälv, rushed away.


[2] af liði Þóris ‘from Þórir’s troop’: This was Þórir hvínantorði ‘Whining-turd’ (?). Nothing else is known about him. For his nickname, see Finnur Jónsson 1907, 331 and ÍF 28, 309 n. 1.
