SUTTUNG Heavy with Broth A giant. Suttung was the son of gilling, who was murdered by the dwarfs fjalar 2 and galar, and the brother of baugi. His daughter was gunlod, the guardian of the mead of poetry see under odin. Suttung hid the three containers of the mead in an underground cave of the mountain hnitborg, where he and Gunlod lived. He would share it with no one. Odin, using his magic, suc-ceeded in getting into the cave and stealing away the mead. Suttung was able to change himself into an eagle to chase Odin who was also in eagle form, but Suttung fell into a fire that the gods had made at the walls of asgard, their home, and perished.
