As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- lög-sekt (lǫg-sekt)
- or lög-sekð, f. ‘law-guilt,’ penalty, one of the three degrees of outlawry, Grág. i. 119.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, lög-sekt may be more accurately written as lǫg-sekt.
Possible runic inscription in Younger Futhark:ᛚᚢᚴ-ᛋᛁᚴᛏ
Younger Futhark runes were used from 8th to 12th centuries in Scandinavia and their overseas settlements
