losts6_poster_430_1009A new poster promoting Lost’s sixth and final season recently surfaced on the Internet—and in addition to a line up of the cast, both past and present, it contains some hieroglyphics to consider. PM sent the poster to Dr. James Allen, Wilbour Professor of Egyptology and Chair of Egyptology and Ancient Western Asian Studies at Brown University—the man who gave the first indication that the mysterious four-toed statue was not Anubis, as many had assumed, but Taweret, the half-hippo, half-croc Egyptian goddess who protected mothers and infants. Allen had this to say about the poster: “The hieroglyphs spell out two Egyptian words, meaning ‘Who is the guide?’ or ‘Who is the leader?'” We’ll leave the interpretation of that up to you. —Erin McCarthy

    I think that is the same set of glyphs as was in a Kia ad that related to Mysteries of the Universe- I recall that it was on some film reels in the ad- was trying to practice translating.

  • Nice post!!
