There was discusion about Ezerum ring inscription on this forum:

Here are more of my thoughts about Ezerum ring inscription:

I have found that Latvian word RULLIS means BOLSTER, REEL, ROLL, SCROLL. So, sentence on the ring can be spelt like this:


Ending -UM here reflects neuter endings -UM in Latin language.

Names Rulistėnas and Nėrėnas have suffix -ėn, like about 50 percents of Romanian and Moldavian place names do. For example: Armeni, Buteni, Galbeni, Glodeni, Ileni, Lupeni, Saveni... The same situation is with Latvian and Lithuanian place names. This suffix both in Romanian and Baltic languages gives to the word the same meaning. So, name Rulistėnas have come from word RULISTAS or RULISTIS, name Nėrėnas have come from word NĖRĖ or NĖRIS. Prussian word KAILUS means WHOLE, but Prussian word KAILUSTAS means HEALTHY. So, if Thracian word RULIS means ROLL, SCROLL, then Thracian word RULISTAS means something like ROLLING, SCROLLED or Thracian word RULISTIS means ROLLNESS, SCROLLNESS. Rulis (Roles) was Dacian king. Word NĖRĖ in Lithuanian language means WAS DIVING. There is river named Neris in Lithuania. Woman with name Neris (Nėris-?) was servant of Medė (Medea). Medė was daughter of Aitis (Aetes) and wife of Aigius (Aegeus). Father of Aigius was Skyrius (Scyrius). Other wifes of Aigius were Aitra (Aithra) and Mėta (Meta). Son of Medė was Medus. Son of Aigius was Tesėjas (Tesseus). Wife of Tesėjas was Eglė (Egli).

Lithuanian word MEDUS, meaning HONEY > names Medė and Medus

Old Lithuanian word AITI (modern Lithuanian - EITI), meaning TO GO > name Aitis

Old Lithuanian word AIGA (modern Lithuanian - EIGA), meaning MOTION > name Aigius

Lithuanian word SKYRIUS, meaning BRANCH, SQUAD > name Skyrius

Lithuanian word AITRUS, meaning CRABBED > name Aitra

Lithuanian word MĖTA, meaning MINT > name Mėta

Lithuanian word TESĖJO, meaning WAS KEEPING HIS PROMISES > name Tesėjas

Lithuanian word EGLĖ, meaning FIR TREE > name Eglė

Aigius lived in Atėnai. There is place name Atėnai (Ateni) in Latvia.

Lithuanian word ATĖJO, meaning HAVE COME > name Atys > Atys + suffix -ėn > name Atėnas, which feminine form would be Atėnė and plural form would be Atėnai
