The two gold horns from Gallehus (dated to the early fifth century) were stolen and melted down by the thieves in 1802, but the celebrated Old Runic inscription has survived in copies.



<ek, Hlewagastiz Holtijaz, horna tawido>

'I, Hlewagast of Holt [locative or perhaps patronymic], made the horn'
