Kalleby Runestone


The Kalleby Runestone is an enigmatic Iron Age runestone inscribed in Proto-Norse with the Elder Futhark:

  • þrawijan haitinaz was

This short text has been the subject of several interpretations where þrawijan, which means "yearning", is interpreted as either a name or an epithet The words haitinaz was mean "was named", and so the text is open to various interpretations, such as:

  • Yearning was imposed on him
  • Þrawija's monument
  • I/he was commanded/called
  • I/He was promised to þrawija

The stone is 21 metres 69 ft tall and 16 metres 52 ft wide, and it was formerly part of a bridge
