Ív Sig 35II/5 — lýðir ‘People’

Helt þrim tøgum        þjóðnýtr konungr
snekkjum sunnan        við sókn búinn.
Uggðu lýðir        lið Sigurðar;
lék skjǫldr við skjǫld        á skipum vísa.

Þjóðnýtr konungr, búinn við sókn, helt þrim tøgum snekkjum sunnan. Lýðir uggðu lið Sigurðar; skjǫldr lék við skjǫld á skipum vísa.

The very able king, ready for battle, steered thirty warships from the south. People feared Sigurðr’s troop; shield played against shield on the leader’s ships.
