Anon Nkt 64II/5 — í ‘in’

Nús gunndjarfs
í grǫf lagit
Magnúss lík
í musteri
í Bjǫrgyn,
þars búit gulli
stendr skrautgǫrt
skrín Sunnifu.

Nús lík gunndjarfs Magnúss lagit í grǫf í musteri í Bjǫrgyn, þars skrautgǫrt skrín Sunnifu stendr búit gulli.

Now the body of battle-daring Magnús is laid in a grave in the cathedral in Bergen, where the splendidly-crafted shrine of Sunnifa stands adorned with gold.


[5] í Bjǫrgyn: Bjǫrgyn Flat


[5] í ‘in’: The prep. (omitted in Flat) is metrically and syntactically necessary.
