As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjórðungs-höfðingi (fjórðungs-hǫfðingi)
- a, m. a Tetrarch, N. T.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjórðungs-höfðingi may be more accurately written as fjórðungs-hǫfðingi.
