hieroglf – The "poor man's" Egyptian Hieroglyphic font

The hi­eroglf bun­dle pro­vides a Type 1 reni­di­tion of some of the an­cient Egyp­tian hi­ero­glyphs. Hiero­glyphic writ­ing was used be­tween about 3000 BC and 400 AD.

The bun­dle is based on Serge Ros­mor­duc's com­pre­hen­sive hi­ero­glyph pack­age, but only pro­vides about one tenth of his 650-odd hi­ero­glyphs. Suf­fi­cient glyphs are pro­vided for writ­ing a few names like Cleopa­tra or Ptolomeny (to­gether with car­touches) and some num­bers, but the pack­age is not for se­ri­ous Egyp­tol­o­gists.

The bun­dle is part of a set of ar­chaic fonts, and re­quires use of the oands fonts from that set.
