This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1854 edition. Excerpt: ...the middle. (L 979, B 7.33; Verelii Runographia p. 87; Peringskitild, Notae in vitam Theodorici p. 475.) Alrekr reisti stein: "Alrek raised this stone: son Sigrltiar, the son of Sigrid at sinn ftidur Spjot, -at his father Spiot, sz i er vestarla ' who in the Western parts um vzirit hafdi had in the spring-time borg um hrotna broken a castle ok um barda, . and beaten eke, (for) hann (ok) garsar he and all his lads (med) Gauti allir, went with Gaut."

This man has died long before Sigrid, and from this may be explained that Alrik is called the son of Sigrid. The explanation of the last distich is difficult. The penultimate word may perhaps be read GUTI rather than sum. KARSI occurs as a man's name on two Runic stones (L 506, 5.15), and it means probably the same as gfisse, a lad in modern Swedish; it is analogous to Finnish lzlossi, French gargmn, Celtish gas, a young boy.
