Létu síðan        súðvigg búin
— œstisk ægir —        útan ór Grikkjum.
Sótti Frakka        fremðar ræsir,
áðr Saxa sjǫt        Sigurðr kannaði.

Létu síðan {súðvigg} búin útan ór Grikkjum; ægir œstisk. {Ræsir fremðar} sótti Frakka, áðr Sigurðr kannaði sjǫt Saxa.

They then made {the steeds of ship-planking} [SHIPS] ready [to return] from the Greeks; the sea raged. {The advancer of honour} [KING] visited the Franks, before Sigurðr explored the dwellings of the Saxons.

Mss: Mork(32v) (Mork)
