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

‘The generous ruler captured Heðinn and his companions off Møre. He let Kálfr klingruauga (‘Round-eye’) be repaid quite brutally for his belligerence.’
When Sigurðr sailed south past Møre, he captured Heðinn harðmagi ‘Hard-belly’ and Kálfr klingruauga ‘Round-eye’. He killed Kálfr and let Heðinn go.
Heðinn and Kálfr are otherwise unknown.
