Ív Sig 37II/4 — vápna ‘weapons’

Hraut í stǫngum,        þars hildingar
við víg vanir        vápna neyttu.
Friðr slitnaði        frænda á millum;
guðr geisaði;        gekk hildr saman.

Hraut í stǫngum, þars hildingar, vanir við víg, neyttu vápna. Friðr slitnaði á millum frænda; guðr geisaði; hildr gekk saman.

There was a crash among the standard-poles where the heroes, experienced in war, wielded weapons. Peace was broken between kinsmen; battle raged; the onslaught commenced.
