As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- smjör-svín (smjǫr-svín)
- n. ‘butter-hog,’ the beggar’s scrip, Skíða R. 13.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, smjör-svín may be more accurately written as smjǫr-svín.
