As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- glens-öl (glens-ǫl)
- n.; dauðinn er glensöl sjaldan saup, sagði skenktú nú mér í staup, Jón Þorl.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, glens-öl may be more accurately written as glens-ǫl.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᚴᛚᛁᚾᛋ-ᚢᛚ
