[12. The order of the lines in this and the succeeding
four stanzas varies greatly in the manuscripts and editions,
and the names likewise appear in many forms. Regin: probably
not identical with Regin the son of Hreithmar, who plays an
important part in the Reginsmol and Fafnismol, but cf. note
on Reginsmol, introductory prose.
14. Dvalin: in Hovamol, 144, Dvalin seems to have given magic
runes to the dwarfs, probably accounting for their skill in
craftsmanship, while in Fafnismol, 13, he is mentioned as the
father of some of the lesser Norns. The story that some of the
dwarfs left the rocks and mountains to find a new home on the
sands is mentioned, but unexplained, in Snorri's Edda; of Lofar
we know only that he was descended from these wanderers.]
