Stúfr Stúfdr 7II/3 — hlífar ‘shields’

Tíreggjaðr hjó tyggi
tveim hǫndum lið beima;
reifr gekk herr und hlífar
hizig suðr fyr Nizi.

Tíreggjaðr tyggi hjó lið beima tveim hǫndum; reifr herr gekk und hlífar hizig suðr fyr Nizi.

The fame-spurred ruler cut down the troop of warriors with both hands; the cheerful army advanced beneath shields there south of the Nissan.


[3] hlífar: hlífar or hlakkar B, hlakkar 744ˣ
