Scholarly Info
Description Flodoald 1 and his brother (Anonymous 557) could not bear to see Anonymous 556 suffer capital punishment and beseeched Swithhun 5 to intercede. On the third day after Anonymous 556 had had to carry the hot iron he is forced to attend the tribunal of Eadric 26 once more so that it may be decided whether he was guilty or not. Anonymous 556 held out his hand and the seal was broken so that the palm could be inspected. All were amazed that Anonymous 556 was innocent. Eadric 26 fell silent and blushed shamefacedly.
