Anon Mv I 19VII/8 — báli ‘of the pyre’

Út giekk síðan sæta
sótt af mörgum dróttum;
hun var harðri pínu
hreld og leidd að eldi.
Bað hun mjúkláta móður
— menn köstuðu henni —
(sat hun fastliga fjötruð)
friðar (í báli miðju).

Síðan giekk sæta út, sótt af mörgum dróttum; hun var hreld harðri pínu og leidd að eldi. Hun bað mjúkláta móður friðar; menn köstuðu henni; hun sat fastliga fjötruð í miðju báli.

Then the woman went outside, fetched by many people; she was afflicted by harsh torture and led to the fire. She asked the humble mother for peace; men threw her; she sat firmly fettered in the middle of the pyre.
