 Hengikeptr: Lit. ‘one with a dewlap or drooping jaw’ (with the last element keptr m. ‘jaw’, also attested in the forms kjaptr and kjǫptr). Cf. Hengikepta or Hengjankjapta, a troll-woman (see Note to Þul Trollkvenna 2/2). Hengikjǫptr is the man who gave King Fróði the mill Grotti and thus caused his death (Skm, SnE 1998, I, 52).
