TempleHieroglyphPilarLayout
This article is a record of the hieroglyphs and other symbols associated with the Temple. For any use other than transcription, see Hieroglyphs.

In the chamber underneath the Temple, Ben found numerous surfaces covered in symbols comprising hieroglyphs and possibly some alchemic symbols. Many portions of these hieroglyphs were written in a cursive form, and so differ from the traditional forms (as shown below).

To simplify discussion, when it is necissary to refer to a specific pillar or face, each pillar and face has been given a unique code, as identified in the diagram to at the right. For example, to an observer facing the mural, a the pillar on the right side, closer to the mural, would be pilar "2", and the side of that pillar facing the mural would be face "2A".

The following tables summarize the symbols associated with this chamber of the Temple. Other than the hieroglyphs on the mural, there are three series of hieroglyphs that are shown on the pillars.

The mural

The hieroglyphs on the mural are written from right to left, as a consequence, each of the glyphs in the table below are facing the opposite direction they are shown on the actual mural. A red background below indicates that the glyph is inverted.

HieroglyphsPillar

Another view of the pillars, showing the second half of the three series

The pillars superficially appear to have dozens of different series of hieroglyphs. However, there are, in fact, only three series of hieroglyphs. Each face on the pillars shows a portion of each series. The hieroglyphs in the left column of a face contains portions of a series here referred to as the "left" series. The hieroglyphs in the center column of a face contains portions of a series referred to as the "center" series. Likewise, the right column of any pillar face contains hieroglyphs from the "right" series.

All the columns

A red background indicates that the glyph is inverted on the pillar.
