HRINGHORNI


HRINGHORNI Ring Horn The longship of the god balder. It was perhaps named for the intri-cate curving ring designs with which it like many Norse ships was adorned. When Balder was slain, the funeral pyre for his body was built on Hringhorni. thor set the fire ablaze, and the ship was sent out to sea. See also ships and ship burials.
