Excerpt from Teutonic Mythology, Vol. 2 of 3: Gods and Goddesses of the Northland

In two places in the poetic Edda (vegtamskv, 7, and Fjolsvinnsm., 33) occurs the word 63n7. Both times it is used in such a manner that we perceive that it is a mythological terminus technicus having a definite, limited application. What this application was is not known. It is necessary to make a most thorough analysis of the passages in order to find the signification of this word again, since it is of importance to the subject which we are discussing. I shall begin with the passage in Fjols vinnsmal.

We have also posted volume 1 and volume 3 on Hravan.
