Algiz is the rune of protection. Though it sounds similar to Thurisaz, it must be understood that the creature this rune is named after only wounds in defense of itself and its home. This is a fascinating rune as it is the only example where it is obvious what the rune is intended to represent, but the literal meaning is in dispute. Many people believe this rune represents an elk, but this is an example of the problem with using the shape of the rune to decipher its meaning, as not only does the elk not grow in water, but most quadrupeds are unsuited for marshy terrain. It is most likely that the name given to the rune in the poem, eolhsecg, is a derivative of Algiz, which literally means protection, and is the root of the words ealh, meaning sanctuary, and ealgian, meaning to defend. Though Algiz it is often thought of as a water plant of some sort in the rune poem, it could just as likely be an extinct marsh animal or even a mythical swamp creature.

Pronunciation: all-yease
Literal Meaning: A water plant or marsh creature of some sort, perhaps a serpent
Other names: Eolih, eolhsecg

Rune Poems:
Anglo Saxon - Eolh-secg eard hæfþ oftust on fenne wexeð on wature, wundaþ grimme, blode breneð beorna gehwylcne ðe him ænigne onfeng gedeþ.
Eolh-secg most often has its home in the fen, it grows in the water it wounds grimly and burns with blood any warrior that in any way dares to take hold of it.
