Scandinavian tradition sees the runes as a gift received by the god Odin after he self-sacrificed himself by hanging for nine nights from the Yggdrasyl tree, pierced by a spear. Runes are an ancient northern European writing system, related to both Phoenician and, especially, Etruscan-type Italic writing systems. What makes it unique from other known alphabets is that, once adopted by the Norse peoples, it was completely revolutionized: the succession of characters was radically changed and it was enriched with symbolic and mystical meanings. Many archaeological finds testify that runes were engraved on objects of all kinds to enrich them with magical powers, objects that thus became veritable talismans. In the Poetic Edda, for example, there is mention of a sword engraved with some runes for victory, also a custom confirmed by numerous findings. Publius Cornelius Tacitus relates that runes were used by clan leaders for divinatory purposes, engraved on pieces of wood that were then spread on a white cloth.
