Hieroglyphs are writing systems that use iconic symbols to communicate messages. Multiple ancient cultures used hieroglyphs, but the most famous variety are Egyptian hieroglyphs. Hieroglyphs typically visually represent their meaning when read alone. Multiple hieroglyphs can also be read phonetically to sound out a word. The Egyptians wrote left-to-right or vice versa, but key symbols such as humans and animals were always drawn to face back to the beginning of the sentence.



The first hieroglyph sequence to have been shown in Lost was displayed by the Countdown Timer in the Swan. In The Lost Experience, it was found in Rachel Blake's Iceland 02 blog post, where they are connected to the Valenzetti Equation.

These hieroglyphs, known as "folded cloth", "curl", "fire drill", "vulture" and "stick", correspond to symbols S29, Z7, U29, G1, Z6 from Gardiner's Sign List. The vulture and stick spell "evil enemy".

At Comic Con 2006, producer Damon Lindelof translated this sequence to mean "underworld", which is now considered the official translation. (Official 'Lost' Podcast/July 31, 2006) Another translation has also been found in Raymond O. Faulkner's A Concise Dictionary of Middle Egyptian, shown below.


Possible translation from Faulkner's dictionary
