hǫptu ‘the bondwoman’: Hapta is the f. nom. sg. form of haptr m. ‘prisoner’ (cf. hapt n. ‘bond, fetter’ and the weak verb hepta ‘to bind’); hence denoting a female prisoner. Otherwise hapta is attested only in the eddic lays (cf. Guðr I 9/1-2, NK 203 Þá varð ec hapta | ok hernuma ‘Then I became a bondwoman and a captive’).
