As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- svart-söðlóttr (svart-sǫðlóttr)
- adj. black-saddled, of a beast with a black saddle-shaped mark on the back, D. N. ii. 225.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, svart-söðlóttr may be more accurately written as svart-sǫðlóttr.
