Hacon's wars and death. Poem on Arinbjorn.

Long time did Egil dwell at Borg, and became an old man.
But it is not told that he had lawsuits with any here in the land;
nor is there a word of single combats,
or war and slaughter of his after he settled down here in Iceland.
They say that Egil never went abroad out
of Iceland after the events already related.
And for this the main cause was that Egil might not be in Norway,
by reason of the charges which (as has been told before)
the kings there deemed they had against him.
He kept house in munificent style, for there was no lack of money,
and his disposition led him to munificence.
