Runes devised by the loremaster Daeron of Doriath, originally intended solely for inscribing words from the Sindarin tongue. To meet the needs of other languages, it became necessary to expand and elaborate the original Certhas, and an adapted form known as the Angerthas Daeron was introduced. Tradition said that Daeron was responsible for this extension to his own work, though at least some of the later developments to the Certhas Daeron seem to have come from the Noldor of Eregion.
