Abstract [en]

The subject of this article is the runestone U 359, an unassuming monument with a previously largely uninterpreted inscription. The runic text seems to be lexical, but the inscription does not follow the standard formulae of Swedish Viking Age runestones. A possible explanation for this is suggested, namely that U 359 represents the last part of an inscription covering more than one stone, and the article attempts an interpretation of the inscription based on this assumption. The possible function of multiple inscription monuments is also discussed, as well as the connection between diminutive runestones and church environments.
