My intention is again to show that Loki is not at all as evil as his reputation has it, and that he, just as stated in the last chapter, most often acts not according to his own free will but to others desires.
He manages to convince Iórr to leave his weapons at home, but on their way he is supplied with a belt of power, a pair of iron gloves and a power staff by a giantess named Grid.
This is of significance when we read the myth of Iórr´s journey to Utgardaloki, where he is accompanied with Ialvi as well, as there has been some discussion about the thunder god´s servant as a common motif where both Loki and Ialvi fit in.

 Donner et Utgardaloki
Comme pour encore mieux agacer Donner, Utgardaloki crut alors utile de lui préciser qu'aucun des géants présents n'éprouvait la moindre difficulté à vider la fameuse corne d'un seul trait, les plus âgés et affaiblis d'entre eux en étant pitoyablement réduits à obtenir le même résultat en trois gorgées.
