As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- höfðingja-stefna (hǫfðingja-stefna)
- u, f. = höfðingjafundr, Hkr. iii. 146.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, höfðingja-stefna may be more accurately written as hǫfðingja-stefna.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᚼᚢᚠᚦᛁᚾᚴᛁᛅ-ᛋᛏᛁᚠᚾᛅ
