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.
