Script typologyGraffito

GENERAL NOTES

The text was considered by S. al-Theeb as separate from ThNIS 7 because the latter ends up with bṭb. It is indeed likely that we are dealing with two different signatures even if, as he suggests, the actual author of the carving is the same in both cases.

TEXT


   1  w-tymw br rwfs b-ṭb

TRANSLATIONS

English

   1  And [may be remembered] Tymw son of Rwfs in well-being.
1[May be remembered] is in brackets because the word dkyr occurs in ThNIS 7, i.e. in the previous text, but it applies also to this one
