As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- flat-skjöldr (flat-skjǫldr)
- m. = Lat. pelta, Stj. 572. 1 Kings x. 16, 17.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, flat-skjöldr may be more accurately written as flat-skjǫldr.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᚠᛚᛅᛏ-ᛋᚴᛁᚢᛚᛏᚱ
