Commentary
Source: The War of the Jewels, pp. 399 to 402.

The text is transcribed in sarati or “letters of Rúmil”, written horizontally from top to bottom and from right to left. The signs are used according to a valuation created by Tolkien and called phonetic form. We made use of Måns Björkman’s typeface Sarati Eldamar.
