arinbjorn

Arinbjorn gave me an ocean-going ship to sail back to Iceland. He loaded it with timber for trading when I reached home.

Arinbjorn was a very generous man.

Before we parted he said “You could hardly have expected a different outcome when dealing with King Eirik. But you won’t be short of money. Take this boat and its load of lumber as compensation for the one you leave behind.

 

I made a verse for him.

May the gods get rid

Of this ruling robber,

Let the heavens hang him

For highway robbery!

May Odin and the others,

Frey and Njord, show their anger

To this enemy of ease

And order at the assemblies.
