Runed Lexicon is a quest item in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


The Dragonborn received a Blank Lexicon from Septimus Signus. After filling it during the quest "Discerning the Transmundane," it becomes the Runed Lexicon and is given to Septimus Signus after the quest. If his remains are looted, the Runed Lexicon can be recovered. However, it has no use other than possibly decorating the home.
