With look to the "Throne - Hieroglyph" (Gardiner Q1) on the head of the goddess, yes.

I think probably not ... Wink

Greetings, Lutz.

In the wake of Lutz, I think the bottom hieroglyphs, while they exist as far I checked, are in fact just randomly set up. Commercial products with a tinge of Ancient Egyptian. No initial intention to be entirely faithful.

aAi -great (of size), sign with papyrus and hand
sbA -star and eye iri -to do, make
iiw -welcome (reed and chicken) or iw -is, are
is -enclitic particle (fourth sign from left side)
Son of sun (third sign from left duck and sun)
nTr -god (first sign on left side)

So partial translation would be great ... welcome, welcome, welcome O son of sun ... god.
It may not be correct.

Sadly, it means nothing of the kind: as noted, these are nonsensical signs (the star is wrong in section 9, there are "commas" in section 13 which have no place in hieroglyphs, there are non-glyphs signs in Sections 10, 11, 14 and 16 which would never appear in hieroglyphs).

As said before, "Commercial products with a tinge of Ancient Egyptian."

Don't try to assume they have a meaning. Whether this papyrus was made in Egypt - or China (as some are) - you cannot count on the glyphs to actually have any appropriate meaning. The artists are concerned with the imagery, not the glyphs.

As Lutz said, most probably the Goddess Isis, due to the headgear, which represents the hieroglyphic symbol for her name. (http://www.egyptartsite.com/isis.html)


To my eye, the symbols are merely jumbled images, and not so much authentic hieroglyphs. Still, always good to check these things to be sure! Very Happy[/url]
