Hér eru þær rúnir,
sem ristit hafa
Njarðar dætr níu,
Böðveig in elzta
ok Kreppvör in yngsta
ok þeira systr sjau.

 

Here are the runes which the nine daughters of Njǫrðr have carved, Böðveig the eldest and Kreppvör the youngest and their seven sisters.

notes: It is unusual for women to be associated with the carving of runes. — [1-2]: These ll. are missing in 167b 6ˣ because of a damaged leaf.
