As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- gils-þröm (gils-þrǫm)
- f. the edge of a gill, Ld. 218, Dropl. 23, Grett. 111.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, gils-þröm may be more accurately written as gils-þrǫm.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᚴᛁᛚᛋ-ᚦᚱᚢᛘ
