Day 3 - Södermanland

Sö 131 - Lundby

Jun 13, 2021

Richard Dybeck excavated this runestone in the mid-19th century, when only a few inches of it was above ground.

There used to be the remains of a stone ship near Sö 131, but it has now completely disappeared.

Translation

“Spjute, Halvdan, they raised this stone in memory of Skarde, their brother. From here he travelled to the east with Ingvar; in Serkland lies Öjvind’s son.”
