'I cannot understand the markings on these tusk-rings, Tomec, but I feel they must have some significance. I know of one who might be able to read their meaning, but she is far from here, and the threat of giants and mammoths is much nearer.

'And yet, if you were to move with haste and chose fast hooves to bear you on your mission, you could reach the one of whom I speak and obtain her counsel. I speak of Gailthin the Elf, once Master Elrond's emissary to the giants. She was one of the few they seemed to respect. She was dispatched to Ered Luin to deal with the troubles in that region and has not yet returned.

'I heard she was to meet with the captain of the dwarf-city of Gondamon in the low-lands of Ered Luin. Seek her out and show her the tusk-rings you wrested from the great mammoths! Her dealings with the giants may give her some insight into what their markings could mean.'


Gailthin the Elf was emissary to the giants in happier days, and she is one of the few who might understand the significance of the tusk-rings you recovered.
