Description MS in Old Danish on silver, Denmark, 10th c., 1 strip, 7,8x0,3 cm, (7,1x0,3 cm), 1 long line in fine upright runes of the younger futhark.
Provenance 1. Private Collector, Denmark; 2. David Miller, Hertfordshire (20th c.); 3. Nicholas Wright Collection, London (-1993).
Commentary The meaning of the inscription is less than clear. The runic letter (eth) is here represented in a form (an X between 2 vertical strokes) not generally found in the Danish futhark. It occurs in the common Germanic futhark. Any writing in Old Danish is of great rarity.
