----- 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 o Numer­als ----- End for­warded mes­sage ----- Thanks for the up­load. I in­stalled it as sug­gested re­plac­ing the old ver­sion in CTAN:fonts/ar­chaic/hi­eroglf/ Rein­hard Zierke 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.
