Mark Eirdr 13II/1 — Vinðr ‘The Wends’

Veldi þorðut Vinðr at halda,
— villa gerðisk þeim at illu —
— sunnan kom þá svikdómsmanna
sáttarof — þats buðlungr átti.

Vinðr þorðut at halda veldi, þats buðlungr átti; villa gerðisk þeim at illu; þá kom sáttarof svikdómsmanna sunnan.

The Wends had not dared to retain control of the realm which the ruler possessed; error turned to misery for them; then came [news of] the truce-breaking of the treacherous men from the south.
