2 elta n(< ONhjalt,pl. hjǫlt, `the boss or knob at the
25end of a sword's hilt; also the guard between the hilt and the
blade
.' SeeMarstrander,Bidrag 77 , 44 ). Usuallytheguard
between thehiltand theblade; thecrosspiecesat right
angles to the blade and hilt, apparently always pl. (see
Marstr.l.c.); the Norse pl. is used in ref. to the two
30guards, confining the hand above and below; in Ir. the
upper knob is perhaps distinguished inmul-elta(q.v.), but
eltain one instance clearly means the guard next the
blade; in the others there is nothing to define the location:
