A totem of defensive magic it warded the physical strikes of the foe and brought fortitude the mind. Icelandic sources mention warriors carrying amulets or tokens of lead cast with the Aegishjalmur who, before entering into battle or duel, would firmly press the Aegishjalmur to their forehead to mark it upon their brow and thus bestow its protections.
