53A - The Syllable KE update1: Origins of Writing in Western Civilization and the Kaulins Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (MinAegCon™): A Syllabic Grid of Mycenaean Greek Linear B Script, the Cypriot Syllabary, the Phaistos Disk, two Old Elamite Scripts, the Inscription on the Axe of Arkalochori, and Comparable Signs from Sumerian Pictographs and Egyptian Hieroglyphs

53A is a small update to posting 53 on the syllable KE adding some material from the Polyglot Vegetarian in his posting on KAMUT -- look under "Egyptian" on the grid below for the added material.

Each syllable is presented in its own posting in this series which started here.

There is first a scan of a "syllabic" table excerpt from the original Microsoft Word manuscript -- the links there are not clickable because it is one image.

That image is followed by the original text -- the links there are clickable -- but you can not see the Aegean Fonts or images embedded in Microsoft Word, as these do not resolve in Blogger, so you will see some "filler" material. After I get all the syllables online, I will clean up the individual pages by making images of the various signs and uploading them to eliminate the current text resolution deficiencies, but it is a massive amount of tedious extra graphics work, so I am not doing it right now, as it is not essential for online purposes. One can see the full grid for the syllable on the scanned image.

incorrectly transliterated
The correct hieroglyph
reading is
LO-KELTE “ale KElter”

Interpreted as “hair tied at the back of the head” but may also represent an apparatus as shown in the 1st column for Egypt.
