          The Old Norse text continues on the right of the Hjulatorp inscription, designating on the stone in Tifnag letters T-A K-GH-L = Tá kughla = "The path of the [sun's] globe."  A relic of the still older Neolithic hieroglyphic script persists in the ideogram of a pair of shoe-prints, representing the word   ("path").  Therefore, the Hjulatorp inscription as a whole has reference to the path of the sun across the sky, and was probably the site of a calendar-regulation observatory (Fell 1982).
