Arn Hryn 1II/2 — minn ‘my’

Kljúfa létk í kaupfǫr dúfu
knarra minn við borð in stinnu.

Létk knarra minn kljúfa dúfu við in stinnu borð í kaupfǫr.

I made my vessel cleave the billow with its firm strakes on a trading voyage.

notes

[2] minn ‘my’: That the possessive pronoun here takes the form with short vowel is shown by the aðalhending with stinnu, cf. þinn : minna (st. 13/4), minn : innan (st. 16/6) and minn : sinni (Arn Hardr 4/4). In Arn Þorfdr 21/4, on the other hand, mínn is indicated by the aðalhending with sína.
