Ægishjálmur (old norse: helm of awe/helm of terror) is an old magical symbol that induces fear in enemies and protects against abuse of power. It is mentioned in the old sagas, such as in the Völsunga Saga, where the dragon Fafnir wears one between his eyes. Scenes from the Völsunga Saga are depicted on a rune stone in Uppland Sweden that is dated to around the year 1000.
