Hi, 

 

Here's the next inscription, the one that I can't recognize at all... even if someone could just tell me what language it is that would be great. 

 

Thanks!

Sorry - no idea. It looks vaguely proto-Hebrew, but what that would be doing in Southern Egypt is anyone's guess and it is way outside my area of expertise.

 

Actually, a closer second look it more resembles linear B that is very worn I think. 

 

Anyone on this?
