In a stanza of Sigrdrífumál, a poem in the Poetic Edda, a Valkyrie teaches that to achieve victory in battle, "victory runes" are to be carved on the sword and the name "Týr" said twice:
if thou longest to win,
And the runes on thy sword-hilt write;
Some on the furrow,
and some on the flat,
And twice shalt thou call on Tyr.
