- öndurr (ǫndurr)
- m., dat. öndri, pl. öndrar = andrar, snow-shoes: whence öndur-áss, m. the god of the öndurr, one of the names of the god Ullr, Edda i. 266: öndur-dís, f. one of the names of the giantess Skadi; both Ullr and Skadi being represented as great runners on snow-shoes, Edda (Ht.): öndur-goð = öndurdís, Haustl.: in poets, Áta öndurr, the sledge of the sea-king Áti, i. e. a ship; Eynefis öndurr, id., Bragi.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, öndurr may be more accurately written as ǫndurr.
