Frák hildinga* gingu framm við Holm inn grána at heyja geirþing; grœn lind varð springa í tvau.
I heard the rulers advanced near Holmengrå to hold a spear-assembly [BATTLE]; the green linden-shield had to split in two.
 hildinga* gingu framm (m. acc. pl) ‘the rulers advanced’: Emended, with earlier eds, from hildingar (m. nom. pl.) ‘the rulers’, because it is part of an acc. with inf. construction (gingu lit. ‘went’ is past inf.). It appears that Einarr, like Kolli and Balti, had scant knowledge of this battle, which was fought at sea. Ingi was three years old when the battle took place, and could hardly have advanced with his five-year-old brother, Sigurðr, ‘to hold a spear-assembly’ (at heyja geirþing, ll. 1, 4) with his enemies. See Note to Balti Sigdr 1/5, 8.
