Þjsk Lv 6I/5 — grjóti ‘ground’

Hvarf inn hildardjarfi
— hvat varð af Þorgarði? —
villumaðr á velli
vígdjarfr refilstíga.
Farit hefr Gautr at grjóti
gunnelds inn fjǫlkunni;
síðan mun hann í helju
hvílask stund ok mílu.

Inn hildardjarfi villumaðr, vígdjarfr, hvarf refilstíga á velli; hvat varð af Þorgarði? Inn fjǫlkunni Gautr gunnelds hefr farit at grjóti; síðan mun hann hvílask í helju stund ok mílu.

The battle-bold false one, slaughter-bold, vanished on secret paths on the plain; what became of Þorgarðr? The sorcerous Gautr <= Óðinn> of war-flame [SWORD > WARRIOR] has gone into the ground; now he will linger in Hell for a while and a bit.

notes

[5] farit at grjóti ‘gone into the ground’: Lit. ‘gone to gravel or stone’. Skj B has er sunken i stengrunden ‘has sunk into the stony ground’.
