Egypt - Hieroglyphics with English Translation

Hieroglyphics with English translation. From inscription by Anna (first half of 18th dynasty) in Cleopatra's Needles and Other Egyptian Obelisks, by Sir E. A. W. Budge. Hieroglyphics are a complex system of writing. Certain pictures stand for objects, while others represent phonetic sounds. Thus, hieroglyphics focused on conveying the sound and meaning of words, not necessarily a particular spelling, n.d.
