Ängsö, Hjulsta monastry
Size: 1.80 m x 1.19 m
The original inscription:
Öbjörn och Torgils reste sten denna
efter Åslek, svärfar sin. Gud hjälpe anden hans.
The inscription in English:
Öbjörn and Torgils raised this stone
in memory of Åslek, their father in law.
May God help his soul.
The arms of the cross are asymmetrical. The blades are
different in shape, the ring uneven and not round. Many
rounded runes tattle about Erik's working position.
All the S-runes were simplified and were carved with half
main staffs only.
The same type of S-runes can be
found on U 793 and
Erik often had troubles with the S-runes and might have thought that
he had found a solution.
The commissioners, however, seemed less
pleased, and after those three stones, Erik never
carved this type of S-runes again.
Below, you can see an article in Swedish on U 774,
taken from the book Upplands Runskrifter.
