Sigv ErfÓl 7I/5 — hôtt ‘high’

Þórð frák þat sinn herða
— þreifsk sókn — með Ôleifi
(góð fóru þar) geirum
gǫrt víg (saman hjǫrtu).
Stǫng bar hôtt fyr Hringa
hjaldrmóðum gram bróðir
— fullt vann — fagrla gyllta
framlundaðr Ǫgmundar.

Frák Þórð þat sinn herða gǫrt víg geirum með Ôleifi; sókn þreifsk; góð hjǫrtu fóru þar saman. Framlundaðr bróðir Ǫgmundar bar hôtt fagrla gyllta stǫng fyr hjaldrmóðum gram Hringa; vann fullt.

I heard that Þórðr on that occasion intensified the full-scale battle with spears alongside Óláfr; the attack flourished; noble hearts advanced there together. The eager-spirited brother of Ǫgmundr [= Þórðr] carried high the beautifully gilded standard-pole before the battle-bold prince of the Hringar [NORWEGIAN KING = Óláfr]; he exerted himself to the utmost.
