|Anglo-Saxon Riddles of the Exeter Book (1963) , translated by Paull Franklin Baum||Riddle 62→
|A creature came where many men
sat at council with wise hearts.
It had one eye and its ears were two;
it had two feet and twelve hundred heads,
a back and a belly and two hands,
arms and shoulders, one neck,
and two sides. Say what I’m called.
|Wiht cwom gongan þær weras sæton
monige on mæðle mode snottre
hæfde an eage earan twa ·
fet hund heafda ·
wombe honda twa
earmas eaxle anne sweoran
sidan twa saga hwæt hatte
