Anthon manuscript



Continuing the theme of the last post, I thought there were some interesting similarities between this example of Hieratic script and the Anthon Manuscript (which is supposed to be characters from "reformed Egyptian.") In particular, the sign shaped like a capital H and the one with four lines crossed seem like they could be the same. Certainly it looks more like Hieratic than Mayan or any other script I'm familiar with. (Click to enlarge the images.)
