𓆑 - Egyptian

Glyph origin

Representing a horned viper. The hieratic Treatise on Ophiology provides a description: ‘Its color is similar to that of the quail; it has two horns on its forehead; the head is broad, the neck narrow, and the tail thick.’ The glyph is conventionally colored yellow. The phonogrammatic value of f is derived by the rebus principle from the word for a viper, ft (Demotic fy).



  1. Uniliteral phonogram for f, as in .f and f.
  2. Logogram for ft (horned viper).
  3. Used with unclear signification in the word jt (father).
