Ív Sig 31II/2 — tekinn ‘captured’

Vann fyr Mœri        mildingr tekinn
Heðin með hǫndum        ok hans liða.
Hann lét Kalfi        klingruauga
heldr harðliga        heiptir goldnar.

Mildingr vann Heðin ok liða hans tekinn með hǫndum fyr Mœri. Hann lét Kalfi klingruauga heldr harðliga goldnar heiptir.

The generous ruler captured Heðinn and his companions off Møre. He let Kálfr klingruauga (‘Round-eye’) be repaid quite brutally for his belligerence.


[2] tekinn: tekr Mork


[2] tekinn ‘captured’: Tekr (3rd pers. sg. pres. indic.) ‘captures’ (so Mork) is a syntactic simplification that must have been caused by the preceding mildingr (m. nom. sg.) ‘the generous ruler’.
