Två runristade kopparamuletter från Solberga, Köpingsvik (Öl Fv1976;96A och Öl Fv1976;96B)
2016 (Swedish)In: Futhark: International Journal of Runic Studies, ISSN 1892-0950, E-ISSN 1892-0950, Vol. 7, 63-99 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

During the Viking Age and Early Middle Ages, Köpingsvik was one of the centres of trade on Öland. Commercial activities can be archaeologically dated from the end of the tenth century until the end of the twelfth, and some ten loose objects inscribed with runes or rune-like signs have been found in archaeological excavations there. The most remarkable find, comprising two interrelated runic plates of copper, was made in 1972 in a post hole by a furnace. The two plates have nearly 240 runes on their front and back. The parts of the text which can be interpreted consist of an invocation of Christ and the Virgin Mary to save the woman Ōlǫf as she gives birth, and also of a heathen curse to drive a three-headed and soil-stained ogre from the labouring woman. Runologically, the inscription reflects eleventh- and early twelfth-century practices.
