As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- skepti-völr (skepti-vǫlr)
- m. a kind of pike, Hkr. iii. 313.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, skepti-völr may be more accurately written as skepti-vǫlr.
