Runic Example - Björketorp Stone Inscription
The left side represents what I see in the picture in the Encyclopædia Britannica. I've used letters from non-Runic character sets to try to match the picture. The right side is the accepted transcription of the inscription.
(uthArAbAsbA - ruin-bringing prophecy - not shown)
hAid runo ronu fAlAhAk hAd(e)rA ginarunAR ArAgeu hAerAmAlAusR uti AR welAdAude sAr thAt bArutR
This is the secret meaning of the runes, I hid here power-runes, undisturbed by evil witchcraft. In exile shall he die by means of magic art who destroys this monument.
The translation, transliteration, and the left transcription above are from: The Encylopædia Britannica - Runic - ©1960
