Runestone U 704

The carvings of the stone are in the runestone style Pr 3 (c. 1045-1075) pertaining to the early Urnes style.

 

The inscription is not signed, but can possibly be attributed to the Runemaster Balle for stylistic reasons.

 

The granite stone is c. 1,11 m tall and 1,06 m wide.

 

 

Notes

 

U 704 was probably part of a monument including U 705. U 705 is signed by the runemaster Balle.
