"Battle-boar." The boar of the goddess Freyja, made by the dwarfs Dáinn and Nabbi, and attested solely in the eddic poem Hyndluljóð. The animal is described as "golden-bristled" (gullinbursti), which leads to a connection with the better attested Gullinbursti, the boar of her brother Freyr.

Made with Sharpies!
