Eskál Vell 6I/1 — odd ‘arrow’

Ok oddneytir úti
eiðvandr flota breiðan
glaðr í Gǫndlar veðrum
— gramr svafði bil — hafði.
Ok rauðmána reynir
rógsegl Heðins bóga
upp hóf jǫfra kappi
etjulund at setja.

Ok eiðvandr oddneytir, glaðr í veðrum Gǫndlar, hafði breiðan flota úti; gramr svafði bil. Ok reynir rauðmána bóga Heðins hóf upp rógsegl kappi jǫfra at setja etjulund.

And the oath-true arrow-user [WARRIOR], glad in the winds of Gǫndul <valkyrie> [BATTLES], had a great fleet out at sea; the ruler ended delay. And the tester of the red moon of the arm of Heðinn <legendary hero> [SHIELD > WARRIOR] raised the strife-sail [SHIELD] with the vigour of rulers to calm the spirit of aggression.
