 þann ‘him’: Lit. ‘that one’, i.e. Oddr’s son Vignir, mentioned but not named in the previous stanza. After guiding his father northwards to the Greenland Sea to find Ǫgmundr, Vignir, still only a boy of ten, but already with prodigious strength, is killed by Ǫgmundr who savagely bites through his windpipe (Ǫrv 1888, 133). This is the act of a troll (Ármann Jakobsson 2011, 42); cf. Egill Lv 35/7-8V (Eg 64), where the same act is attributed to Egill Skallagrímsson.
