Note to Þul Óðins 5III

[8] Vingnir: A mythical name for the god Þórr and for a giant (see Note to Þul Jǫtna I 5/8), and also a heiti for ‘ox’ (see Note to Þul Øxna 1/10). As a name for Óðinn, Vingnir occurs only in the present stanza (and in LaufE). According to Falk (1924, 34), the name could have been transferred to Óðinn owing to a misinterpretation of the line vitnis vígi at ‘in the fight with the wolf’ as vingnis vígi at ‘in the fight with Vingnir’ in the Codex Regius version of Vafþr 53/6 (NK 55).
