As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- völt (vǫlt)
- or völtur, f. pl. [valtr, velta], a roller, a thing belonging to the fittings of a ship, Edda (Gl.)
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, völt may be more accurately written as vǫlt.
