    Thats a pretty epic looking monument.

    Wonder what is written at it? And my instincts are telling me there may be others like it in different places around calypso.

    Those are runes at the centre sphere and base of the monument. And planetary systems on top.
    Anyone know how to translate saxon runes? Or maybe not saxon, but surely there is a translation to these runes.


    Edit:
    Anglo-saxon runes
    Gift chalice hail lake
    If i got it right

    Edit:
    Maybe this can help translating

    Runes in the bubble confirmed, most ancient runesets are on wikipedia, hope to have time to transliterate it.
    The letters on the pedestal however begin with what looks just like the Coptic letter Djanda, pronounced like English J. I don't recall that shape in the old rune sets. All 4 of the pedestal letters, if assumed to be from the Canaanite or South Arabian sets, spell GZHJ (remember the old Semitic charactersets omitted vowels).

    If we assume they are FUTHARK runes and call the Djandja-looking thing misshapen G, we get "KWLA" in the bubble and "GZ?L" below. Dalecarlian runes would provide a few alternative interpretations including "KPLF GÖKL". The funky G could also be a funky D.

    Anglo-Saxon Futhorc runes yield "auulæ gk?l" with no match for the pamphyllian-sampi looking letter.

    I didn't find enough about Ulfilan runes to be useful.

    Old Hungarian runes were slightly more helpful, yielding a possible "TAJI UZSRJ" with the ZS upside down and the rest of the runes facing the wrong way ("IJAT JRZSU"? I don't speak Hungarian).

    Old Turkish runes yield maybe "ṅyqig dični" if it were written by a very stoned mind reaver, again with most of its letters facing the wrong way ("inčid giqyng"?)... yea, no.

    I'm going with KPLF GÖKL as an acronymn because it looks vaguely Swedish to me.

    ... shoot, it could also be "URGU EKUG" in really old Ancient Greek. Would a mind reaver say that?
    .... just one man's opinion
