Grímnismál is a mythological poem found in the Poetic Edda which is preserved in the Codex Regius manuscript as well as the AM 748 I 4to fragment.
Lindow (2001, p. 265) has suggested, on the basis of the etymology of the name Sága referencing the role of a seeress (Simek 2007, p. 274), that Sága and Sökkvabekkr might be different names for Frigg and Fensalir, used for the purposed of alliteration. Frigg is described as a seeress in Lokasenna.
Sága is also mentioned in Gylfaginning amongst the Ásynjur.
