As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bein-vöxtr (bein-vǫxtr)
- m. bone-growth, bonyness; lítill (mikill) beinvöxtum, of small (big) frame, Bs. i. 328.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bein-vöxtr may be more accurately written as bein-vǫxtr.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛒᛁᛁᚾ-ᚢᚢᛋᛏᚱ
