The spear-lazy sluggard stood far away at that time, when the speeder of battle-light [SWORD > WARRIOR] seized the rival of Rindr <giantess> lacking bride-payment [= Jǫrð (jǫrð ‘earth’)]. It was not possible for the prince of Africans or his people to hold the hail-coifed maiden of Ánarr <dwarf> [= Jǫrð (jǫrð ‘earth’)] against him.
 mey Ánars ‘maiden of Ánarr <dwarf> [= Jǫrð (jǫrð ‘earth’)]’: Jǫrð (cf. Note to l. 3 above) is also the daughter of a figure whose name appears variously as Ánarr (here established by the aðalhending on hnum), Ónarr (established by rhyme on grón in Hfr Hákdr 5/4III) and Annarr ‘Second’ whose name perhaps reflects his status as second husband of Nótt ‘Night’ (SnE 1931, 17; SnE 1988, 13). He seems to have been imagined as a dwarf (Vsp 11; Þul Dverga 3/6III).
