I was about to break out my Gardiner and ***** up and down about the bogus text. (Two semesters of Middle Egyptian at UC Berkeley -- the most useless of the languages I've studied.)

It's one of the things that really annoys me about pseudo-Egyptian art and such in decorators' books and curio shops. THey go through the trouble to make it, but don't even take the time to copy a real set of text off of anything readily available like the Book of the Dead ("Budge? I don't know why they keep publishing him..."). Granted nine of ten people probably won't know the text is bogus, but there's a LOOK to it. See those three horned owls all right next to each other? Ick.

Nice work susje. Go you!

Effingham, dude, that faux-Egyptian stuff has been going on approximately since the last priests at Philae packed up and went home. Heh, Budge. My copy is ex-library, but not from a sale; I stole it when I was ten. Only real, actual theft I ever committed. Never got caught, never gave it back, still have it, still have the twinge of shame. :)

Since it was Budge, I want to think you did the library patrons a good turn. :)
