Day 7 - Norrköping

Ög 155 - Sylten

Jul 12, 2021

This is the southernmost Ingvar runestone, designated Ög 155, that we are sure about.

The runestone stands in Sylten in Bjällbränna. It’s raised by Torfrid in memory of his sons, one of which died with Ingvar.

It was re-erected and moved a small distance in 1896, by the owner of the homestead.
