Long Description:
"The Hørning stone (DR 58) was carved by an emancipated slave in honour of his master. The inscription reads:
tuki : smiþr : riþ : stin : ift ¶ þurkisl : kuþmutaR : sun : is : hanum ¶ kaf : kul : uk : frialsi
Toki Smiþr resþi sten æft Þorgisl GuþmundaR sun, æs hanum gaf gul(?) ok frælsi.
Tóki Smiðr reisti stein ept Þorgísl Guðmundar son, er honum gaf gull(?) ok frelsi.
(Text taken from Samnordisk runtextdatabas)

This translates as:
Toki the smith raised this stone in memory of Thorgisl, son of Gudmund, who gave him gold(?) and freedom."
