As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- bjór-tjöld (bjór-tjǫld)
- n. tapestry, = bjórr, Vm. 135: b. um sönghús, id.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, bjór-tjöld may be more accurately written as bjór-tjǫld.
