As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- fjörsungr (fjǫrsungr)
- m. [Norse fjærsing], a fish, draco marinus, Edda (Gl.); arfr fjörsunga, the heirloom of dragons, a hoard, cp. Fáfnis arfr, Hkv. 2. 23.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, fjörsungr may be more accurately written as fjǫrsungr.
