Excerpt from The Ogham-Runes and El-Mushajjar: A Study
The above specimen of the ogham-runes is quoted from J oh. Cr. Liljegren.6 In Hermothena 7 we find the opinion that this twig-rune, correspond ing with the Ogham Craobh (or virgular Ogham),8 composed of an upright stem an... d side branches, sug gested the stepped, ladder or primitive Ogham° and hence the perfect popular Ogham. This theory has by no means been generally accepted. Yet it well exemplifies the principle upon which the various Abecedaria were constructed - namely, that the symbol for any letter showed in the first instance its particular group amongst the three; and, secondly, the place which it held in that group. Goransson (bautil, p. 232) figures an ancient monument on which are a few words written in these Ogham Runes with the twigs (rfinneftrecfen), the remainder being in the common Runes.
