{Leyfðir hróðrsynir Haralds} fóru til {herstefnu} með miklu liði, þás Ingi knúði atróðr á sæ at {mildum syni Magnúss}.

{The celebrated, famous sons of Haraldr} [= Ingi and Sigurðr] went to the {army-meeting} [BATTLE] with a large force, when Ingi hastened the rowing at sea toward {the generous son of Magnús} [= Sigurðr].

Mss: Mork(34v) (Mork)

Editions: Skj AI, 501, Skj BI, 473, Skald I, 232; Mork 1867, 218, Mork 1928-32, 431, Andersson and Gade 2000, 383, 493 (Sslemb).

Context: The sons of Haraldr gilli, Ingi and Sigurðr, set out with their army to meet Sigurðr and Magnús.

Notes: [1, 3] leyfðir hróðrsynir Haralds ‘the celebrated, famous sons of Haraldr [= Ingi and Sigurðr]’: Both Ingi and Sigurðr were minors at this time. According to Mork (Mork 1928-32, 429-30), Sigurðr was five years old, and Ingi was three years old. Hence their active participation in the campaign appears to be somewhat exaggerated. See also Notes to Balti Sig 1/5, 8 and Kolli Ingdr 1/7. — [2] með miklu liði ‘with a large force’: According to Mork (1928-32, 431) and Hkr (ÍF 28, 316), Ingi and Sigurðr set out with twenty very large ships. — [7, 8] knúði atróðr á sæ ‘hastened the rowing at sea’: See Note to Steinn Niz 3/8.
