Runestone Vg 37
March 18, 2021
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.
The rune text begins at the bottom of the rune ribbon.
