 gollskata ‘a gold-man [GENEROUS RULER = Knútr]’: This is a bland and slightly unusual kenning, but it resembles other kennings denoting men as givers, throwers or destroyers of gold, and is cited alongside them by Snorri (see Context above). Kock (NN §787) suggests OE influence and compares OE goldwine ‘gold-friend’.
