I figured out what the Amulet says. It’s not so hard..

This one is obvious: SETH !!

What makes: He who takes the amulet shall release Seth!!

Hieroglyphics made with Jsesh. Picture from the FMV of TRIV.

Lower part of the amulet[]

@a-return-croft-manor​ asked me to translate the base of the amulet.

As far I can tell it looks like random hieroglyphics.

First part:

  • StX (Setekh) = the God Seth
  • `nn (ann) or sbh3 (sebeha) = returns or returning
  • S3b (Sab) = Jackhal (but it could also another animal)
  • Khaset = Desert / strange land
  • Seth animal + kh = Setekh  = Seth.
  • Unknown sign, probably an walking Seth god.

Second part:

  • Unknown sign, probably an walking Seth god.
  • hq3t = magic or sceptre / rules
  • Seth animal
  • `nn (ann) or sbh3 (sebeha) = returns or returning
  • Sb3 (Seba) x 2 = Sb3yt (Sebayt) = Star /  travel over water / choir leader / teaching
  • g3, Hsb, Wha, Xpw (multiple meanings)
  • Unknown sign.

Probably The god Seth returns as a Jackhal in the desert (or strange lands), Seth. Seth rules as evil and returns as a star …. That’s all what I can make from it. It’s gibberish..

With help from the program Jsesh and the book Maria Carmela Betrò, Hierogliefen, de beeldtaal van het oude Egypte.
