In Norse mythology, Gilling is a giant who was drowned by the dwarves Fjalar and Galar after their crime against Kvasir in order to get rid of an accomplice. The Gilling's wife breaks out loudly about the loss of her husband. The two villains want to muzzle her and kill her with a stone. The revenge takes Gilling's son Suttung , who sets the dwarves on a cliff washed over by the sea until they hand over the cauldrons with the skalding mead , which they have brewed from Kvasir's blood, as atonement. The myth is passed down by Snorri Sturluson in his work Skáldskaparmál .
