Header/Picture stone with male figures. Lovely details in the depiction of the clothes. The stone does not depict "normal" male features such as weapons and traveling but in stead the typical female drinking vessels offered to homecoming warriors. They are also wearing long garbs, which is considered more common for women. Still, they clearly have beards...

Rune stone, Krogsta, Uppland, Sweden, from the 6th century AD, with a human figure and an inscription. One of three known rune stones in Uppland carved with the elder rune alphabet, and the only one still in its original position. The inscription is only partly deciphered - the text on the backside probably renders the word "stone".  Photo taken ca. 1900
