Þstf Stuttdr 6II/6 — Yggs ‘of Yggr’s’

Varðir, Hǫrða
hvatr fylkir, at
grǫf góðra lof*
geti kviksettra.
Á skínn æva
Yggs fjǫldyggra
sól svangœli,
siklingr, an þik.

Hvatr fylkir Hǫrða, varðir, at grǫf góðra kviksettra geti lof*. Sól skínn æva á fjǫldyggra Yggs svangœli an þik, siklingr.

Swift ruler of the Hǫrðar [NORWEGIAN KING = Sigurðr], may you ensure that the grave of the good holy ones obtains glory. The sun will never shine upon a more virtuous pleaser of Yggr’s <= Óðinn’s> swan [(lit. ‘Yggr’s swan-pleaser’) RAVEN/EAGLE > WARRIOR] than you, lord.
