"Refusal." One of the Ásynjur, according to the Nafnaþulur and Snorri Sturluson in Gylfaginning:

"The eleventh is Syn: she keeps the door in the hall, and locks it before those who should not go in; she is also set at trials as a defense against such suits as she wishes to refute: thence is the expression, that syn1 is set forward, when a man denies."

1. syn, "denial" or "refutation."



  • Gylfaginning, 35.
