4374Off topic runes
- Jul 3, 2004This is way off topic, but I can't help but be curious. I am making
drop spindles for spinning wool. In making the whorls (weights) of clay,
I thought it would be fun to embelish them with runes. Obvious would be
"fli fæstr," but I came across research that showed many inscriptions
with "alu" on them which seems to be a magical code, but probably more
appropriate to my little spinning whorls was found on a weight for a
fisherman's net which was marked "aluko" which someone suggested might
be "little magic." Can someone explain the "alu"? There is nothing in
Also if I were to use the expression "allákaft" (very fast) or "alllétr"
(very light), would I just use a single rune for the letter "L"? And
also is the "r" at the end of alllétr, the rune that looks like an "R"
or the other one?
