As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjör-gamall (fjǫr-gamall)
- adj. stone-old, (mod.); cp. fjörðgamall.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjör-gamall may be more accurately written as fjǫr-gamall.
