As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- átt-jörð (átt-jǫrð)
- and ættjörð, f. = átthagi, Ísl. ii. 186, A. A. 252: in mod. usage = Lat. patria, and always in the form ætt-.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, átt-jörð may be more accurately written as átt-jǫrð.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛅᛏᛏ-ᛁᚢᚱᚦ
Younger Futhark runes were used from 8th to 12th centuries in Scandinavia and their overseas settlements
