As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- steina-sörvi (steina-sǫrvi)
- or -seyrvi, n., see sörvi, Edda 68, Ísl. ii. 343, Fas. iii. 543.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, steina-sörvi may be more accurately written as steina-sǫrvi.
