The most obvious mythological connection with the rune Raido is Odin’s famous horse, Sleipnir, a fabulous steed with eight legs, which could carry his master to all of the nice worlds of creation. However, tradition states that the rune is intimately connected with an obscure Teutonic fertility God called Ing, Who may well have been imagined as a powerful stallion. Ing was a god of great importance to the early Anglo- Saxons. When they first came to the shore of Britain during the 5th and 6th centuries AD, they bore the banner of the white stallion, which remains the emblem of the country of Kent, in southern England, to this day. It is likely that ing would have been completely forgotten by now were it not for the fact that the country of England owes its very name to Him.
