text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):



Fjórum vetrum eftir fall Magnúss konungs fór Sigurður
konungur liði sínu úr Noregi. Þá hafði hann sex tigu skipa.



Svo segir Þórarinn stuttfeldur:



Svo kom fylkis

framt lið saman

margspaks mikið,

mildingi vilt,

að skip við skip

skarfögr við lög

hreins grams héðan

hnigu, sex tigir.


Sigurður konungur sigldi um haustið til Englands. Þá var þar
konungur Heinrekur sonur Vilhjálms bastarðs. Var Sigurður
konungur þar um veturinn.



Svo segir Einar Skúlason:



Vosöflugr réð vísi

vestr helmingi mestum.

Óð að ensku láði

ægis marr und harra.

Stál lét hilmir hvílast

heiftglaðr og var þaðra,

né gramr af val Vimrar,

vetrlengis, stígr betri.
