"Edge-servant." A jötunn, the joyous watchman of a giantess. He sits on a hill near Járnviðr, the Ironwood, playing his harp:

There on a height sat,
striking a harp,
the giantess's watch,
the joyous Egdir;
by him crowed,
in the bird-wood,
the bright red cock,
which Fialar hight.

Eggthér is not mentioned elsewhere in the poems.
