The Möjbro Stone  

 

 

The Möjbro stone wich originally stood in Möjbro, southwest of Uppsala, today is situated in Statens Historiska Museum in Stockholm.

As indicated in the photo above, some runes as well as other signs have not been painted, and have not been noticed by previous researchers.


 

The Meaning of the Möjbro Inscription


The runes in the upper part of the Möjbro inscription are:

This is partly a boustrophedon inscription, where the first row is read from right to left or from left to right (it does not matter since the word "s-o-s" is a palindrome), the second row from left to right and the last two rows from right to left. Transliterated the runic part of the Möjbro inscription can be written as:

s-o-s
z-o-a
a-n-a-h a-h-a i-s-l-a g-i-n-a
u
f-r-a w a-r-a d-a-z


This text is close to the Blekinge inscriptions in language. Thus its language is closely related to Biblical Hebrew and Aramaic. We can therefore even write it by means of the Hebrew script:


The meaning of this is:

Horse
trembles,
complains:Woe! Will remove the protection (shield),
and makes bare and uncovers frightened.


In this text the horse symbolises the male genital which "makes bare" and "uncovers" - known metaphors for sexual intercourse, compare Leviticus 20:18-19.

After the word "z-o-a" there appear to be two Minoan Linear A characters, which transliterated can be written as:

no-no


"no-no" means "fish". In the Middle East the fish anciently functioned as a symbol of the male organ.


 

The Gematria of the Möjbro Inscription


The following sums are obtained by summing up the gematrical values of the runes in the Möjbro inscription:

Row 1: 15 + 23 + 15 = 53.

Row 2: 14 + 23 + 3 = 40.

Row 3: 3 + 9 + 3 + 8 + 3 + 8 + 3 + 10 + 15 + 20 + 3 + 6 + 10 + 9 + 3 = 113.

Row 4: 1 + 24 + 4 + 3 + 7 + 3 + 4 + 3 + 22 + 3 + 14 = 88.

In total we therefore have 53 + 40 + 113 + 88 = 294, which also can be written as 776. Thus we have again a gematrical sum which is divisible by seven.
