A human being (Yes, we've all read Oedipus!). Here is why...

- when man is born he crawls (4 legs)
- when he is grown he walks on two.
- when he is old he walks with a cane (three legs)

The answer is tongs. And this isn't really on subject is it?

Thanks for the info Nebsy. To be honest I had always had a suspicion that the people of Egypt themselves would have at least been interested in reading the symbols that cover the monunuments littered alongside the Nile. Somehow I don't think that this discovery will send shockwaves through the Egyptological community though. . .

I almost forgot - that's an interesting article, but I thought the language was first figured out by the ancient Egyptians? :wink:
