Hi all,

regarding the glyphs that appear in the photo below


do u think the first sign on the top could be translated as "wja" (Gardiner P44D)
or
"Axt" (Gardiner N27)

in either case, would that convey a meaning.

is there a particular reference I can use for peculiar signs like the one in hand?
or perhaps
any clue on officials serving in the domain of the divine adoratress

many thanks for help

Padese

The sign is P44D, not N27, conveying the meaning of "ship."

It appears to be a partial phrase, so I won't translate it without context:

Transliteration:

...wiA m.t dwA...

Good luck on translation: I won't do it for you.

thanks Neseret,

it is indeed a partial phrase!

no need for translation....I only wanted to make sure my guessing was right

but thanks again.
