Hskv Útdr 1II/7 — fellat ‘fell’

Ok fádýrir fóru
Fjǫlnis hróts at móti
— vígôsum hlóð vísi —
víkingar gram ríkjum.
Náði herr at hrjóða
— hlaut drengja vinr fengi
fyrðum hollr, þars fellat
fátt lið — galeiðr átta.

Ok fádýrir víkingar fóru at móti Fjǫlnis hróts ríkjum gram; vísi hlóð vígôsum. Herr náði at hrjóða átta galeiðr; vinr drengja, hollr fyrðum, hlaut fengi, þars fátt lið fellat.

And the ignoble vikings went to the meeting of Fjǫlnir’s <= Óðinn’s> roof [SHIELD > BATTLE] with the mighty monarch; the prince set up the protective plankings. The army was able to clear eight galleys; the friend of the warriors [= Sigurðr], devoted to the people, seized loot where not a few troops fell.
