*Isaz is the reconstructed Proto-Germanic name of the i-rune ?, meaning "ice". In the Younger Futhark, it is called Iss in Icelandic and isa in Old Norse. As rune of the Anglo-Saxon futhorc, it is called is.

The corresponding Gothic letter is ? i, named eis.

The rune is recorded in all three rune poems:

Rune Poem:[1] English Translation:

Anglo-Saxon
? Is byþ oferceald, ungemetum slidor,
glisnaþ glæshluttur gimmum gelicust,
flor forste ge?oruht, fæger ansyne.


Ice is very cold and immeasurably slippery;
it glistens as clear as glass and most like to gems;
it is a floor wrought by the frost, fair to look upon.

Old Icelandic
? Íss er árbörkr
ok unnar þak
ok feigra manna fár.
glacies jöfurr.


Ice is bark of rivers
and roof of the wave
and destruction of the doomed.

Old Norwegian
? Ís k?llum brú bræiða;
blindan þarf at læiða.


Ice is called the broad bridge;
the blind man must be led.
