Draupnir is a legendary gold ring that comes from Norse mythology. Imbued with magical powers, it was forged by the dwarfs Eitri and Brokk who were known for making powerful objects. Brokk stood before the gods in Asgard and presented the ring to Odin as proof of their abilities!!
9. The Book of Thoth
First mentioned in the Turis papyrus, a document that was published in Paris in the late 18th century, the Book of Thoth was a sacred tome of Egyptian texts, supposedly written by the god of writing and knowledge. It is said to contain a number of spells, such as giving you the power to speak to animals, or to witness the gods themselves. According to legend, anyone who reads the book would gain the power to decipher the secrets of the earth, the sea, the air, and all celestial bodies.
8. The Cup of Jamshid
Persepolis was one of the most important cities of the Persian empire, and for more than 200 years served as its capital- mainly thanks to its ruler, Jamshid, who according to legend, presided over the city for hundreds of years. The city’s name means ‘the throne of Jamshid’, and his wisdom made the city powerful and rich, and the kingdom was the envy of all who encountered it. So how was he able to live and let alone rule for 200 years??
7. The Kusanagi
The Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi is a legendary Japanese sword whose name translates to mean the ‘grass cutting sword' or ‘herb quelling sword'. It's one of the three imperial regalias of Japan, along with a mirror and jewel, and is believed to represent the virtue of valor.
6. Thor’s Hammer
When you think of Thor’s hammer, you’d be forgiven for immediately conjuring up images of the weapon that Thor wields in the Marvel movies, but the hammer from Norse legend is arguably much more impressive.
5. The Cintamani Stone
The Cintamani Stone is a legendary gem from Buddhist and Hindu mythology that fulfills the wishes of whoever holds it. According to legend, the gem fell from the stars and landed in Tibet, where the Buddhists worshipped it as a spiritual jewel. As time passed, its true power became apparent, though, and it was moved to the hidden city of Shambhala where it would be safe from falling into the wrong hands.
4. The Apple of Eris
The Golden Apple of Eris was, perhaps, the most controversial artifact in mythology, and one that would set some of the most renowned events into action.
3. The Club of Dagda
This next treasure comes from Irish mythology, where Dagda was one of the most important of a race of Gods known as the Tuatha De Danann. He was the god of knowledge, abundance, of life and of death… and he could even control the weather to affect the harvest. He had a cauldron of plenty and two pigs that he used to help feed people, but his most famed possession was his club.
2. The Peaches of Immortality
Said to have grown in the garden of a Chinese goddess, the peaches of immortality, quite predictably, grant those fortunate enough to eat them with never-ending life. They are mentioned in Taoist mythology and are so special that they would only ripen after a very long time, at which point they were served at a banquet for the immortals.
1. The Golden Fleece
The Golden Fleece is one of the most famous treasures from mythology, having been the prize that Jason and his Argonauts sought in order for him to take his rightful place on the throne of Iolcus.
