Runestone Vg 37

The stone’s carving is technically not in the runestone style Pr 1 (c. 1010-1040) as Gräslund formally defines it. But the border on each side of the rune ribbon is stylistically typical for designs in Pr 1 pertaining to the Ringerike style (as seen on Sö 101 and N 84).


The inscription is not signed.


The granite stone is c. 1,65 m tall and 0,42 m wide.


Runic inscription

The rune text begins at the bottom of the rune ribbon.

The top of the stone is missing.
