Icon er samjafnan tveggja persóna eða þeira tilfella sem Snorri kvað:
121. Herfanga bauð Hringi
hjaldr einskǫpuðr galdra
Gautr hvatti þrym þreyta
þann ok Hilditanni
oflengi veldr yngva
ósætt en vel mætti
hans dóm vǫlundr rómu.
Hér er óeiginlig líking milli Óðins ok nǫkkurs illgjarns manns.
Eikon is the comparison of two persons or their characteristics, as Snorri said: [...] Here there is an improper comparison between Odin and a certain malevolent man.
