- dul-höttr (dul-hǫttr)
- m. a disguise-hood, hood used for a disguise, FmS. x. 383; dró ek dulhött (MS. wrongly djarfhött) um dökkva skör, Ad. 3.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, dul-höttr may be more accurately written as dul-hǫttr.
