Pendant

Small square silver pendant. The front is convex and decorated with filigree, with a small, oblong hole in the centre. On the smooth back, which has now come loose, there is an inscription of several lines of Runes, whose contents still await an interpretation. The pendant may have been a hiding place for relics. Along with other silver pendants it was part of a large set of beads. Grave find, Birka, Bj 552, Adelsö Parish, Uppland.
