Anon Hsv 95VII/4 — ánauðgan ‘an enslaved’

Gott ráð nema        skal gumna hverr,
        þótt kenni þý eða þræll;
ánauðgan mann        hygg ek opt vera
        frjálsum fróðara.

Hverr gumna skal nema gott ráð, þótt þý eða þræll kenni; ek hygg ánauðgan mann opt vera fróðara frjálsum.

Every person must take good advice, even if a female or male slave teaches it; I think an enslaved man is often wiser than a free one.


[4] ánauðgan: so 624, óauðgan 1199ˣ
