The Magi: Franks Casket (8th c.)

Franks Casket (8th c.)

~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~ ~~~~~

Three magi are shown. Possibly all bearded.

The runes are:
ᛗ = “Man, human”
ᚨ = “God”
ᚷ = “Gift”
(????) = “????”
Possibly the last letter is Isaz. Which sounds similar to Jesus as Isa, but Isaz apparently means ice.
