An Akkadian soldier wearing a sash. This soldier is from a later period, but the sash is similar to those worn by the soldiers on Sargon's victory stele.

First “runic” Thor’s Hammer ever, seems to have been recently found in Købelev in Lolland/Denmark. The writing consists of seven runes, and says ”Hmar x is” which means “This is a Hammer” - where “x”  simply is a sort of space character (other usual ones are ” + ” and ” : “).  The Hammer dates to the 10th Century, and of the about 1000 Thor’s Hammers that have been found, this is the only one with any sort of (at least preserved) writing on it.

The discovery of a century Viking artifact resembling the Hammer of Thor solved a long-running mystery surrounding more than ancient amulets found across Northern Europe, according to a rep
