As defined by the Cleasby & Vigfusson Old Norse to English dictionary:
- yfir-hökull (yfir-hǫkull)
- m. an over-mantle, a surplice, Ám. 15.
Orthography: The Cleasby & Vigfusson book used letter ö to represent the original Old Norse vowel ǫ. Therefore, yfir-hökull may be more accurately written as yfir-hǫkull.
