Anon Mey 26VII/2 — lýðinn ‘the people’

Ágáða með yndi fríðu
ættuð vel, sú lýðinn bætti
Sikileyjar í sínu ríki,
sóma prýdd og æsku blómi.
Quinciánus kæru væna
kvaldi sárt, er miskunn dvaldi;
fljóðið vill hann fá til brúðar;
fríðri snót er þvert í móti.

Ágáða með fríðu yndi vel ættuð, sú bætti lýðinn í sínu ríki Sikileyjar, prýdd sóma og blómi æsku. Quinciánus, er dvaldi miskunn, kvaldi sárt væna kæru; hann vill fá fljóðið til brúðar; fríðri snót er þvert í móti.

Agatha, with fair delight [and] of a good family, she improved the people in her kingdom of Sicily, adorned with honour and the bloom of youth. Quintian, who rejected mercy, painfully tortured the beautiful woman; he wants the woman as [his] bride; the fair maiden is adamantly against it [lit. (this) was very much against the fair maiden(’s wishes)].
