Hermanna fór hranna
hyrbrjótr liði at móti,
samr vas í kn at fremja
sik Plácitus, miklu.
Ógn stóð angrs af hegni;
ulfgœðendr þá flœðu;
þegn hlaut goðs fyr gagni —
gr háðisk vel — ráða.

 

{The destroyer {of the fire of the waves}} [(lit. ‘fire-destroyer of the waves’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] went to meet a great host of warriors; Plácitus was disposed to distinguish himself in battle. Menace issued from {the suppressor of sin}; [HOLY MAN] {the wolf-feeders} [WARRIORS] fled then; {God’s retainer} [HOLY MAN] was able to gain the victory; the battle was fought well.

notes: [5-8]: The wording of this helmingr is much closer to the C text of the prose saga than to the Lat. and A texts (Louis-Jensen 1998, cxxv).
