Brass pendant based on original found in Lindby, Sweden dated to IX-X Century AD
Týr is a god of war and will take mead, meat and blood for sacrifice. If a warrior carved the rune Tîwaz on his weapon he would be dedicating it to Týr and strengthen the outcome of a battle to be in his favor. After a warrior has dedicated his weapon to Týr he should not lose it or break it.
Tuesday is in fact “Tīw’s Day”.
