A short description of a hof (temple) containing an idol of Þórr, placedin a wagon pulled by two wooden-goats. Þórr sits in the centre of the hof and is decorated with silver and gold.




Occurs in the Flateyjarbók version of Ólafs saga Tryggvasonar en mesta, a younger redaction of the saga. The narrative focuses on the life and deeds of the Christian king, Ólafr Tryggvasson.
