doesnt it say "My name is Maegnas, I am Spiders Bane"?
and wasnt there an elf that originally owned after it was forged, before the fall of the city?

I dont remember sting in the Simarillion.

shadowy_blue
it actually means.

sharp-point I am called - slayer of spiders I .'

if you will really translate it peace by peace. But I just said

'Sting is my name, I am the spiders bane'

to be most literal. But yeah, it really does mean

My name is Maegnas, I am Spiders Bane


I really can't remember anymore if it was owned by somebody else before. I think it was too though, but I can't remember who.

It is not known who owned it in Gondolin.
Maybe one of the Lords, but as it's quite short, I don't think it was used as a sword but rather as a knife as shadowy_blue said.


Strange that Sting already talks about the spiders as Bilbo destroyed them far later - perhaps it was reforged or was made by someone who predicted the story.

The details can be found in The Hobbit smile

i thought it was kind of weird that the sword mentioned spiders, but maybe it is because of ered gorgoroth where ungoliants offspring were, but then again the people of gondolin rarely left the city, who knows?
