Gísl Magnkv 5II/6 — fellu ‘fell’

Hyrr sveimaði;        hallir þurru;
gekk hár logi        of herǫð þeira.
Séa knátti þar,        es salir fellu,
landrôð konungs,        of liði Þóris.

Hyrr sveimaði; hallir þurru; hár logi gekk of herǫð þeira. Þar knátti séa landrôð konungs, es salir fellu of liði Þóris.

Fire surged; halls collapsed; the high flame swept across their herǫð. There one could see the king’s government as dwellings fell around Þórir’s troop.


[6] es salir fellu ‘as dwellings fell’: Es snarir fellu ‘as brave ones fell’ (so F) is possible, but less preferable from a contextual point of view.
