Sö 108 - Gredby

Jun 20, 2021

Sö 108 is a carved runestone that stands next to Sö 107 and Sö 109 near Balsta.

This runestone has been moved between several places, but the original place was probably nearby.

The name of the son is Gunnulf, which means war-wolf, while the father’s name is Ulf, which means wolf.
