(9)Wieland (Volundr), Wayland the Smith, the only Teutonic hero (his original home was lower Saxony) who firmly established himself in England.
Three brothers VOlundr, Egill and Slagfil,r seized the swan-maidens Hlal)gulT, Olrfln and Hervor, who, divested of their feather dresses, stayed with them seven or eight years as their wives.
The second part of the story concerns VOlundr, lord of the elves, the cunning smith, who, after learning his art from Mime, then from the dwarfs, came to the court of King NIN19r, and there defeated in fight the smith Amilias.
For the vengeance of VOlundr there is a very close counterpart in the medieval versions of the vengeance of the Moorish slave on his master.
The left-hand compartment of the front of the casket shows VOlundr holding with a pair of tongs the skull of one of NiPo],r's children, which he is fashioning into a goblet.
