As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- epla-stöng (epla-stǫng)
- f. an apple-stalk, a cognom., Fms. viii.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, epla-stöng may be more accurately written as epla-stǫng.
