In Hávamál, Odin enumerates the charms he has learned. In the fifteenth, he names a dwarf, called Þjóðrœrir, who sang in front of Dellingr's doors:

For the fifteenth I know
what the dwarf Thiodreyrir sang
before Delling's doors.
Strength he sang to the Æsir,
and to the Alfar prosperity,
wisdom to Hroptatýr.

Dellingr in the poem is probably another dwarf, and not Dellingr the father of Dagr. Hroptatýr is one Odin's many names.
