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 :)
