The Västerljung Runestone
This runestone is located on the cemetery of the church of Västerljung, but it was originally found in 1959 in the foundation of the southwest corner of the church tower.
One side of the stone has the runic text within a serpent band with the head and tail of the serpent bound at the bottom. The figure at the bottom of the stone is interpreted as Sigurd’s brother-in-law Gunnar.
Latin alphabet transliteration :
haunefʀ + raisti * at * kaiʀmar * faþur * sin + haa * iʀ intaþr * o * þiusti * skamals * hiak * runaʀ þaʀsi +
Old Norse transcription:
Honæfʀ ræisti at Gæiʀmar, faður sinn. Hann eʀ ændaðr a Þiusti. Skammhals hiogg runaʀ þaʀsi.
Hónefr raised (the stone) in memory of Geirmarr, his father. He met his end in Þjústr. Skammhals cut these runes.
