No need to be an expert to see that his reading of Fig. 1 as
Cyrillic X - Cyrillic L - Runic D is absurd, as if people ever
shifted scripts like this in mid-word! The examples have obviously
been redrawn, but a quick look at the Unicode Runic block
reinterprets Fig. 1 as Runic G-U-D, which makes cogent sense
on a gold coin.
I didn't have much luck interpreting the other examples, because
of the redrawing, but clearly all the letters are plain Runic;
some older futhark, some younger.
