----- Forwarded message from "Wilson, Peter R" -----
I have uploaded hieroglf.tar.gz to dante/incoming. Please use this to replace the current fonts/archaic/hieroglf. The distribution is under the LPPL.
>From the README:
The hieroglf package provides a Metafont version of about 75 Egyptian hieroglyphs from Serge Rosmorduc's comprehensive hieroglyph package. Sufficient glyphs are provided for writing a few names like Cleopatra or Ptolomeny (together with cartouches) and some numbers. There is a command for transliterating into a modern alphabet. The package is not for serious Egyptologists.
New in version 1.2

Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested replacing the old
version in CTAN:fonts/archaic/hieroglf/
for the CTAN team
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.
