grǽg-hama
Add: If the word denotes a living creature the verb gylleð would point to a bird rather than to the wolf. The verb þeótan (q.v.) and the noun geþot are the words used for the howl of the wolf, while gellan (q.v.) is used of the scream of a bird. As the epithet grǽg is applied to the mew, grǽghama might be a mew or gull. It may be noted that in the passage both birds and armour, two objects of which gellan may be predicated, are mentioned Fugelas singað, gylleð grǽghama, gúðwudu hlynneð, scyld scefte oncwyð.
