I am curious to know if the inscription on the Witham sword of Germanic origin could be a combination of Christianic and Germanic prayer, or worship. I am very impressed by the explanation Marc van Hasselt gave, both on the Alphen sword and this Witham sword. Christian and Latin abbreviations seam clear, leaving the characters WDN yet to be deciphered. That is, if indeed the strange R is in fact a strange N. And the sword is believed to be from Germanic origin. Could this part WDN then refer to the Germanic "god" Wodan ? Wodan, the "god" of life and death... In addition, I really would like to see a picture of the reverse side as well... Kind regards, Frank
