Can someone here read hieroglyphs? Is this legit?
« on: October 26, 2017, 08:59:23 am »
Hey guys, can someone here read hieroglyphs? Supposedly this is from the Book of the Dead: https://puu.sh/y7DrT/254074d120.jpg

Is it true or just gibberish?

Em hotep,

Can't read it, but it might not help you much anyway. Those words are meant to be read up to down and it looks like there's portions of it that were cut off the up/down. Which means you probably have a rendition where someone took a picture of a portion of the Book of Coming Forth by Day, cropped it to the thickness they wanted, and stylized the characters a bit further.

I don't think it would be terribly legible, even if it does come from one of the Books.

It's a cropped portion from the BOD. & the hand is in cursive hieroglyphs that looks like the Hunefer or Ani papyrii. Some of the Gods mentioned are Horus, Djehuti, Re & sinmply "the Gods." Also mentioned are "my heart," "the scales" & "born (of) the Gods." Probably from the chapter of weighing of the heart. Hope that helps :)
