Things of Middle-earth
Description:Cirth is a writing system of runes devised by Daeron of Doriath. Although he devised them for use by the Sindar, the Cirth never really gained popularity with them. Rather, it was the Naugrim who adopted the Cirth and took it eastward with them, where its use "passed into the knowledge of many other peoples."
