Ív Sig 11II/6 — ræsir ‘The advancer’

Létu síðan        súðvigg búin
— œstisk ægir —        útan ór Grikkjum.
Sótti Frakka        fremðar ræsir,
áðr Saxa sjǫt        Sigurðr kannaði.

Létu síðan súðvigg búin útan ór Grikkjum; ægir œstisk. Ræsir fremðar sótti Frakka, áðr Sigurðr kannaði sjǫt Saxa.

They then made the steeds of ship-planking [SHIPS] ready [to return] from the Greeks; the sea raged. The advancer of honour [KING] visited the Franks, before Sigurðr explored the dwellings of the Saxons.


[6] ræsir fremðar ‘the advancer of honour [KING]’: See Note to Hskv Útdr 9/3.
