This article deals with a fragment of a rune-inscribed grave-slab which was observed in 1980 at Tornby farm in Fornåsa parish, Östergötland. The fragment was subsequently moved to the county museum in Linköping, but it was never properly published. As shown in the article, the short inscription contains some very rare runic characters that make a valuable contribution to our knowledge of the development of medieval runes. It is also argued here that the fragment from Tornby originally belonged to the same stone as the more familiar grave-slab Ög 35 from Fornåsa church.
