The Golden Rune is five engraved stone tablets that form a map showing the way to King Solomon's mines.
The map was made by five vikings who found the mine and by mistake released the demon Bail. Each viking kept one part of the Golden Rune. The pieces were placed on a staff carved from golden wood, that later was given by a past Phantom to an ancestor of Old Man Mozz and eventually became the staff of Mozz himself.
The five parts of the Golden Rune were given to the following vikings, from top to bottom:
- Hagen, found in the Arctic (with the staff) by the 17th and future 18th Phantom
- Bor, found in Lala Singh's palace in Mucar by the 3rd Phantom
- Ale, found in the Skull Cave by the 21st Phantom
- Bure, found in Zaal by the 9th Phantom
- Alrik, found in the house of Cagliostro in Paris by the 12th Phantom
