As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- öl-bekkr (ǫl-bekkr)
- m. an ale-bench, drinking-bench; sitja á ölbekki, to sit drinking, Fms. vii. 227.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, öl-bekkr may be more accurately written as ǫl-bekkr.
