The Room of the Harpers
To the east of them I beheld another ennead. Nine branchy, curly manes upon them. Nine grey, floating mantles about them: nine pins of gold in their mantles. Nine rings of crystal round their arms. A thumb-ring of gold round each mans thumb: an ear-tie of gold round each mans ear: a torque of silver round each mans throat. Nine bags with golden faces above them on the wall. Nine rods of white silver in their hands. Liken thou them.
I know those, quoth Fer rogain. They are the kings nine harpers, with their nine harps above them: Side and Dide, Dulothe and Deichrinne, Caumul and Cellgen, Ol and Olene and Olchói. A man will perish by each of them.
