 Gauta ‘Gautar <= Óðinns>’: The base-word of a kenning for ‘warriors’, probably the pl. of the Óðinn-name Gautr (and so previous eds). Names of gods are frequent in this role, and pl. forms occur, especially frequently in the case of Njǫrðr (Meissner 259). Gautar is also the name of the people of Gautland (Götaland), but this is unlikely here.
