Sigurðr reið eftir slóð Fáfnis til bælis hans okfann það opið ok hurðir af járni ok gætti; af járni vóru ok allir timbrstokkar íhúsinu en grafið í jörð niðr. Þar fann Sigurðr stórmikið gull ok fylldi þar tvær kistur. Þar tók hann ægis hjálm ok gullbrynju ok sverðið Hrotta ok marga dýrgripi ok klyfjaði þar með Grana. En hestrinn vildi eigi fram ganga fyrr en Sigurðr steig á bak hánum.

(Sigurd rode along Fafnir’s track to his lair and found it open and with doors and door-frames of iron. All the beams of the house were of iron, and they were driven down into the earth. There Sigurd found a huge amount of gold and filled two chests with it. Then he took the helmet of terror and a gold mail-shirt and the sword Hrotti and many other treasures, and loaded Grani with it, but the horse would not proceed until Sigurd climbed onto his back.
