John Dee completed the first English translation of the Necronomicon from the Latin in the early 1600s. His manuscript describes the magical Omen Antiquitatum - the Elder Sign. We have followed his instruction precisely by using acid to etch Dee's Elder Sign onto a plate of genuine copper. The result is a striking recreation of a magical artifact used to keep the forces of the Mythos at bay.

The Occultist Edition of the Omen Antiquitatum is made to meet the demanding needs of live role players and those interested in using it for actual occult experiments. It features a hand-made etched copper version of the symbol, carefully aged with verdigris, and comes with proper antiqued nails for securing it over doorways, old pieces of luggage, crypts, or other portals through which Darke Thinges may pass. The Elder Sign comes with a facsimile copy of five pages of the Dee Necronomicon which discusses the Omen Antiquitatum, its consecration and and use.

We have more Elder Sign items: the Elder Sign: Collector's Edition, the Omen Antiquitatum T-Shirt, and ElderWear featuring men's briefs, women's panties and the dreaded ElderThong!
