As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjöldi (fjǫldi)
- and fjölði, a, m. multitude, Fms. i. 37, Eg. 74, 79, Nj. 8; fjöldi manna = fjölmenni, N. G. L. i. 30.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjöldi may be more accurately written as fjǫldi.
