Mark Eirdr 15II/3 — knôttu ‘began’

Rǫndu lauk of rekka kindir
risnumaðr, svát hver tók aðra;
hamalt — knôttu þá hlífar glymja —
hildingr fylkði liði miklu.

Risnumaðr lauk rǫndu of kindir rekka, svát hver tók aðra; hildingr fylkði miklu liði hamalt; þá knôttu hlífar glymja.

The doughty man enclosed the descendants of champions with the shield, so that each linked with the next; the prince marshalled his great troop in a wedge-shaped formation; then the shields began to resound.


[3] knôttu: ‘guattu’ 180b
