I've been studying Ancient Egypt for a novel of my own since before the film came out. I'm keen to learn more Hieroglyphics...
Does anyone have a copy of the cover stone glyphs that Daniel re-translates? I can't find the snakelight symbol which is above the upside down U on the chalk board. Is it a snake or a bird, if so which kind? I can't find it in any of my books. It is vaguely drawn in the film. The first section before the | is clear. I can clearly read the first word as year using Gardiners "Egyptian Grammar," but can't find million. being spelled the way it appears on the chalkboard. If you have the full Hierogliphic text, I'd love to take a look at it.
It's that element of real history that draws me into the movie Stargate.
