[1, 2] tanna Hallinskíða ‘of the teeth of Hallinskíði <= Heimdallr> [GOLD]’: Gylf (SnE 2005, 25) gives Hallinskíði as a name of the god Heimdallr, and says that his teeth were of gold. Hallinskíði, perhaps ‘one with leaning sticks’, is also a heiti for ‘ram’, and there may be an association between the animal and Heimdallr (see Þul Hrúts 1/6III and Note; Simek 1993, 128-9).
