Dear List Members

The links that appear here below show a sample of may hieratic translation collections. They are two files (pdf and jpg) for the same thing: Translation and clarification of problem 24, from the authorized manuscript of the "Canons of Saphon", the so-called Rhind Mathematical Papyrus, one of the problems on Sundial Rotation.

I hope that you enjoy reading it; it shows one of the arrays of hidden information concerning the astronomical and mathematical hieratic symbols included in that particular papyrus. They should be revealed in order to know more about the knowledge of our Ancient Egyptian ancestors.

Best Regards

Hossam Aboulfotouh
