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.

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?
