Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is the Hieroglyphs' Manuel de Codage? (Definition)

The Hieroglyph Manuel de Codage (Coding Manual - MdC) is a standardized system for encoding and decoding Egyptian hieroglyphs. It allows complex hieroglyphic symbols to be represented using a series of alphanumeric codes.

How to encrypt hieroglyphs using the Manuel de Codage?

To encode messages in the form of hieroglyphs according to the Coding Manual, consult the MdC tables to find the corresponding symbol:

Aπ“„ΏB𓃀D𓂧F𓆑
Gπ“ŽΌH𓉔I𓇋Kπ“Ž‘
Mπ“…“Nπ“ˆ–Pπ“ŠͺQπ“ˆŽ
Rπ“‚‹Sπ“‹΄T𓏏Wπ“…±
X𓐍Yπ“‡ŒZπ“Šƒ

Example: The 6 letters S,P,H,I,N,X forming the word SPHINX are equivalent to char(78580)char(78506)char(78420)char(78283)char(78358)char(78861)

The manual includes thousands of signs, but only 19 are coded with a single letter. It is therefore not possible to code words in English that contain the letters C,E,J,L,O,U,V.

How to decrypt hieroglyphs using the Manuel de Codage?

To decode hieroglyphs using the Coding Handbook, first identify the sign/symbol/glyph to be decoded. Then consult the MdC tables to find the letter corresponding to this sign:

π“„ΏA𓇋i𓏭yπ“‡Œy𓂝aπ“…±w𓏲W𓃀b
π“Šͺp𓆑fπ“…“m𓐝Mπ“ˆ–nπ“‹”Nπ“‚‹r𓉔h
π“Ž›H𓐍xπ“„‘Xπ“Šƒzπ“‹΄sπ“ˆ™Sπ“ˆŽqπ“Ž‘k
π“ŽΌg𓏏t𓍿T𓂧d𓆓D

This list of hieroglyphs is limited to symbols that have a uniliteral correspondence (1 hieroglyph = 1 letter of the alphabet)

Example: The 4 symbols char(78143)char(78358)char(78753)char(78420) are coded with the 4 letters ankh in the MdC coding manual.

How to recognize hieroglyphs from the MdC?

Uniliteral hyeroglyphs in the Manuel de Codage (coding manual) are limited to 29 different ones.

All references to Egypt, its pyramids, pharaohs, its sphinx, are clues.
