Egyptian Hieroglyphs To Latin Alphabet

Did you know that the modern Latin alphabet letters may be modified Egyptian hieroglyphs? Look at the chart below. Can you see how each Latin letter may have originated from an Egyptian hieroglyph?

Chart showing the progression from Egyptian hieroglyphs to Latin alphabet letters.

The chart shows the progression through five writing systems: Egyptian Hieroglyphs → Proto-Sinaitic → Phoenician → Ancient Greek → Latin. The step from Egyptian hieroglyphs to proto-Sinaitic is conjectured but not certain. The chart is simplified and not authoritative. My sources were Wikipedia and other websites. You can search the web to learn the tangled tale of the history of each letter.

Many of the world's major scripts can trace their origins back to the Semitic family of scripts and thence (possibly) to Egyptian hieroglyphs.
