Kolli Ingdr 1II/4 — verðar ‘food’

Unnuð austr fyr Mynni
oddhríð, ok brátt síðan,
hilmir, fekk und hjalmi
hrafns verðar lið sverðum.
Lǫgðuð ér, en eirar
ǫrr synjaðir brynju,
— ungr varðir þú, þengill,
þitt land — saman randir.

Unnuð oddhríð austr fyr Mynni, ok, hilmir, brátt síðan fekk lið und hjalmi verðar hrafns sverðum. Ér lǫgðuð saman randir, en ǫrr synjaðir brynju eirar; þengill, ungr varðir þú land þitt.

You fought a point-storm [BATTLE] east by Minne, and, ruler, soon thereafter the host beneath the helmet furnished raven’s food [CORPSES] with swords. You crashed shields together and, brave, you refused mercy to the byrnie; lord, as a youth you defended your land.


[4] verðar: so , E, J2ˣ, 42ˣ, H, Hr, ferðar Mork, F



case: gen.
