As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bein-stökkull (bein-stǫkkull)
- m. a sprinkle (stökkull) of bone, Am. 105.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bein-stökkull may be more accurately written as bein-stǫkkull.
