As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- atgörða-maðr (atgǫrða-maðr)
- m. a ready man, El. 15, Sturl. ii. 127.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, atgörða-maðr may be more accurately written as atgǫrða-maðr.
