Hieroglyphic Sign List
compiled by Bill Petty, PhD

Experience Egypt with

Thutmose III
The Hieroglyphic Sign List  is a small, pocket sized book (measuring 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 3/8", with 58 pages) which has been specifically designed to be easily carried for ready accessibility.
It contains over 800 Hieroglyphic signs (all of the signs listed in Gardiner's sign list plus a few extra) along with their pronunciations (more specifically their transliterations), their definitions (or translations) and examples of their usages.
The signs are divided and numbered according to the standards established by Sir Alan Gardiner, with just a few exceptions. It is indexed by standard groups (again using the Gardiner standard) as well as by shape, so finding a particular sign is relatively quick and easy.

Whether you are traveling to Egypt, visiting your favorite museum, or doing research, at only $12.95, this small book is a "must have" for the professional Egyptologist as well as the interested amateur, or the traveler who wants to get the most out of what he or she is seeing.
