A Lexicon of Ancient Egyptian Cryptography of the New Kingdom
This is the first synthesis on Egyptian enigmatic writing (also referred to as “cryptography”) in the New Kingdom (c.1550–1070 BCE). Enigmatic writing is an extended practice of Egyptian hieroglyphic writing, set against immediate decoding and towards revealing additional levels of meaning. The first volume consists of studies by the main specialists in the field. This second volume is a lexicon of all attested enigmatic signs and values.
