Ív Sig 40II/5 — ræsis ‘The ruler’s’

Flýðu Jótar        átján skipum,
þeirs Sigurði        sunnan fylgðu.
Raufsk ræsis lið,        þás ríkr konungr
vanr vásfǫrum        vápna neytti.

Jótar, þeirs fylgðu Sigurði sunnan, flýðu átján skipum. Lið ræsis raufsk, þás ríkr konungr, vanr vásfǫrum, neytti vápna.

The Jótar, who had accompanied Sigurðr from the south, fled with eighteen ships. The ruler’s troop scattered when the mighty king, accustomed to hard journeys, wielded his weapons.
