As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- níð-stöng (níð-stǫng)
- f. a ‘nið-pole,’ see níð, Eg. 389, Grág. ii. 147.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, níð-stöng may be more accurately written as níð-stǫng.
