Update on: Kariong Glyphs
I visited the Glyphs on Easter Saturday 2012, on my way to Sydney. (Having transliterated and translated the glyphs on the mainsite, Google: "ancient Egyptians in Australia, Senff"), the second posting should give you the 150 p. download to my research.) my interest was centred this time on the Glyphs, found by Jake Cassar in February 2012, in order to get clear photos, and, if possible, try to discover the meaning of the fully destroyed glyph, that starts the series of the incription. Very close inspection reveals a face, whether human or Toth
is unclear, wearing a Neferiti like Hat or crown with a broad band around the Hat, three-quarter way up looking, to the left. As the Glyphs have been detoriating for some thousands of years, they should be treated with chemicals as soon as possible, to stabilize the surface, in order to preserve them for science, archaeologist and egyptologist and the public.
However, until the site is protected by the N.S.W. Dept. of National Parks and Wildlife Service, the exact location shall not be revealed by me.
I have tried to find a similar glyph in Gardiner's, Budge's, Allen's, Whithuhn's or Bethro's, All to no awail. even a search through Ray Johnson's Basic Hieroglyphia proved useless, making this another uniquely Australian glyp, that is not recorded yet, anywhere.
If someone knows of a similar glyph, I would appreciate information of this, especially the meaning of it, and in what publication it appeared.
Futher, the original inventor of the claim that: "The Kariong Hieroglyphs are a Hoax," made by Steven Spillard in "Encyclopaedia of dubious Archaeology" has been repudiated by him on the Site "Unexplained Mysteries," Forum "Kariong" about p.8.
Spillard now claims, that it was written by some faceless and nameless person, but not him. So, researchers please note, The claim, that the Kariong Glyps are a Hoax is no longer sustainable, as it has been repudiated by the Autor and is no longer valid.
