[3, 7]: Óðinn’s taming of horses must refer to a now lost myth. For the Óðinn-name Kjalarr, see Grí 49/4-5 (NK 67): enn þá Kialar | er ec kiálca dró ‘and then [they called me] Kjalarr when I pulled the sled’. This latter reference is obscure as well, because there is no extant myth that connects Óðinn with a sled. For a discussion of the etymology of this name, see Note to Þul Óðins 1/5.
