"Protecting beard." A jötunn from whom Odin received a magic wand (gambantein). He used the wand upon Hlébarð and stole his wits away:

Great seductive arts I used
against the riders of the night,1
when from their husbands I enticed them.
A mighty Jötun I believed
Hlebard to be:
a magic wand he gave me,
but from his wits I charmed him.

1. Giantesses, witches, etc.
