Day 3 - Södermanland

Sö 173 - Tystberga

Jun 13, 2021

A kilometer to the east of Tystberga church, by a dirt road, there stands three runestones.

The runestone was raised in memory of Rodger who travelled both to the west, and with Ingvar to the east, where he died. It’s cracked, and the upper left part of the face has fallen off.

“Meskia and Manni had these monuments raised in memory of their brother Rodger and their father Holmsten. He had long been in the west; they died in the east with Ingvar.”
