Hfr Óldr 6I/2 — grundar

Gerði seims (með sverði)
sverðleik í Mǫn skerðir
(eyddi ulfa greddir
ógnblíðr Skotum víða).
Ýdrógar lét œgir
eyverskan her deyja
— Týr vas tjǫrva dýrra
tírargjarn — ok Íra.

Skerðir seims gerði sverðleik í Mǫn; ógnblíðr greddir ulfa eyddi Skotum víða með sverði. Œgir ýdrógar lét eyverskan her ok Íra deyja; Týr dýrra tjǫrva vas tírargjarn.

The diminisher of gold [GENEROUS MAN] made sword-sport [BATTLE] in Man; the battle-glad feeder of wolves [WARRIOR] destroyed the Scots widely with the sword. The terrifier of the bow-string [WARRIOR] caused the army from the Isles and the Irish to die; the Týr <god> of precious spears [WARRIOR] was eager for glory.
