Hovgården runestone

Within the ruins of Hovgården is a runestone, Upplands 11:
"Rað þu runaR. Rett let rista ToliR bryti i roði kunungi. ToliR ok Gylla letu ris[ta] ..., þaun hion æftiR [si]k(?) mærki ... Hakon bað rista."
"You read the runes! Right let cut them Tolir, bailiff in Roden, to the king. Tolir and Gylla let carve (these runes), this pair after themself as a memorial... Håkon bade carve."
