The solar ship, which carries the sun across the heavens each day and beneath the earth each night, is shown here 12 ft southeast-by-east of the main sun-god figure. The inscription, a palindrome reading in either direction, is K-L W L-K, Keolwe loki (Old Norse kjol ve logi, Ship of the Blazing Standard." The sun forms the standard. The Tifinag letters befuddled archeologists who originally uncovered the inscription, so they noted it as a "curved line of dots." (Fell 1982).
