To make it worse.
Says its Greek :)
Gives the spelling
Demontic for the Egyptian venacular language.
And the page is World Archeology online.
I agree I think its a miss spelling thats been propagated.
Now this url
Is cool actually has a fragment of the language if that doesn't it look
similar to Arabic even though its not claimed to be and ancestor language for
Arabic. I wonder if it had more influence on modern scripts such as
arabic and hebrew then is acknowledged.
Anyway I agree I'm wrong mislead I suspect by World Archeology :)
