Chapter 87 - Of the clan of the Mýramen.
Thorstein Egil's son received baptism when Christianity came to Iceland, and he had a church built at Borg. He was true to the faith, and a
good man. He lived to be old, and died in his bed; he was buried at Borg by the church which he had built.
From Thorstein have come numerous descendants; many great men, many poets: they are of the stock of the Myra-men, as are all who sprang from
Skallagrim. It long held good of that kin that the men were tall, and great warriors, some too were of prophetic sight. They were of two distinct types: for
in that stock have been born the handsomest men in Iceland, such were Thorstein Egil's son, and Kjartan Olaf's son, sister's son of Thorstein, and Hall
Gudmund's son, also Helga the fair, Thorstein's daughter (about whom Gunnlaug Worms-tongue and Skald-raven quarrelled). But the more part of the Myra-men were
Of the brothers, sons of Thorstein, Thorgeir was the strongest, Skuli was the tallest. He dwelt at Borg after the days of Thorstein his father.
Skuli was long time out freebooting. He was forecastleman of earl Eric on the Iron Ram when king Olaf Tryggvason fell. Skuli was in seven battles, and was
deemed a great warrior and a brave. He afterwards came out to Iceland, settled in the house at Borg, and dwelt there till old age; many have been his
descendants. And so ends this story.
87. kafli - Um Mýramannakyn.
Ţorsteinn Egilsson tók skírn, ţá er kristni kom á Ísland, ok lét kirkju gera at Borg. Hann var mađr trúfastr ok vel siđađr. Hann varđ mađr
gamall ok sóttdauđr ok var jarđađr at Borg at ţeiri kirkju, er hann lét gera.
Frá Ţorsteini er mikil ćtt komin ok margt stórmenni ok skáld mörg, ok er ţat Mýramannakyn ok svá allt ţat, er komit er frá Skalla-Grími. Lengi
helzt ţat í ćtt ţeiri, at menn váru sterkir ok vígamenn miklir, en sumir spakir at viti. Ţat var sundrleitt mjök, ţví at í ţeiri ćtt hafa fćđzt ţeir menn, er
fríđastir hafa verit á Íslandi, sem var Ţorsteinn Egilsson ok Kjartan Óláfsson, systursonr Ţorsteins, ok Hallr Guđmundarson, svá ok Helga in fagra, dóttir
Ţorsteins, er ţeir deildu um Gunnlaugr ormstunga ok Skáld-Hrafn. En fleiri váru Mýramenn manna ljótastir.
Ţorgeirr, sonr Ţorsteins, var ţeira sterkastr brćđra, en Skúli var mestr. Hann bjó at Borg eftir dag Ţorsteins, föđur síns, Skúli var lengi í
víking. Hann var stafnbúi Eiríks jarls á Járnbarđanum, ţá er Óláfr konungr Tryggvason fell. Skúli hafđi átt í víking sjau orrostur.
