Mark Eirdr 16II/2 — drengir ‘warriors’

Styrjǫld óx of stilli ǫrvan;
stengr bôru framm vísa drengir;
mildingr gekk at miklum hjaldri
malmi skrýddr ok faldinn hjalmi.

Styrjǫld óx of ǫrvan stilli; drengir vísa bôru framm stengr; mildingr gekk skrýddr malmi ok faldinn hjalmi at miklum hjaldri.

Battle increased around the generous ruler; the leader’s warriors carried the standard-poles forward; the generous one advanced, dressed in metal and clad in a helmet, to the great tumult.


[2] stengr bôru framm vísa drengir: ‘[…]’ 20b I;    drengir: drengi 180b


[2] drengir ‘warriors’: See Note to st. 5/1 above.
