ran (OSw) ran (ODan) ran (OGu) rán (ON) noun

There was a clear distinction between robbery (ran) and theft (þiufi, styld etc.). The thief operated in secret or under the cover of night, whereas the robber (ransmaþer) committed his depredations by daylight and often used violent methods, which were, however, regarded as less reprehensible than those of a sneak thief. In effect, ran sometimes took the form of a forced sale, it being not unusual for the ‘robber’ to leave behind a purchase price. Both material property and immaterial rights could be robbed. Ran entailed compensation for the one who had suffered the robbery and the payment of a ránbaugr to the king.
