Ancient Signs

The Alphabet & the Origins of Writing

My new print & ebook
shows that modern alphabets are based on ancient alphabets rooted in syllabic scripts of the ancient world (Sumer, Egypt, Iran, Anatolia, Crete, Cyprus)

Decipherment by Andis Kaulins

The wooden Honolulu Tablet No. B 3622

Honolulu Tablet

One of the Easter Island Tablets
(Honolulu Tablet No. B. 3622)
- today in the museum in Honolulu
- is in my opinion clearly a Zodiac of the stars
perhaps made for seafaring
(the Zodiac of stars marks the ecliptic
and the path of ths Sun).

The materials presented here are excerpted from the book,
An Astrological Zodiac in the Script of Easter Island,
by Andis Kaulins,
the main pages of which are scanned online (click the link).

The key to decipherment of this tablet
is in the recognition that it is neither alphabetic,
syllabic nor purely hieroglyphic
- but that like signs are part of "one sign" viz. "one concept".

When we group like signs together,
we see that the above tablet is an astrological Zodiac,
with the recognizable signs in the correct order,
and the remainder of the signs
subject to explanation
by an examination of relevant sources.

Reading from right to left the signs are:

  • Leo (Regulus, mul.UR.GU.LU, viz. Hydra, the snake, the "U"-type figure)
  • Virgo (Vulva, Spica, mul.AB.SIN, the cross-figure)
  • Libra (the three "horns" together, qaran.mul. GIRTAB)
  • Scorpio (Ophiuchus, the one-legged man of the Quechua)
  • Sagittarius (the two-legged man, Hercules)
  • Capricorn (goat's horn)
  • Pisces (the two fish)
  • Aries (represented by two stars, perhaps including the Pleiades ?)
  • Taurus (the Hyades as the three "hooks", perhaps including the Pleiades ?)
  • The gems ? on the belt of Orion (as the three stars of Orion's Belt)
  • Gemini (the two joined figures)
  • Cancer (the grabbing claws)

ALL are in the correct order.

The two separate symbols of the bird and the fish
might be read as ZIB.BUOT = "stars"
deriving from a combination of Indo-European terms
as e.g. Latvian ZIV- (fish) and PUT.nis (bird).

The analysis above is substantiated
by the same basic order of signs - 30 degrees removed -
in the cursive "signature" of the Easter Island chief(s)
as appended to the official document
by which the Gonzalez party in 1770-1771
claimed Easter island for Spain.
See Aguera y Infanzon, D.F.A. de,
"The Voyage of Captain Don Felipe Gonzalez
to Easter Island in 1770-1771
Hakluyt Society Publications, Series II, No. 13,
trans. by Bolton Glavill Corney
in the section
"Journal of the Principal Occurrences During the Voyage (1770)".
This was the chief's "signature" - as reproduced below.

Honolulu Tablet

The meaning is clear
when we compare it to the
Honolulu Tablet B. 3622 - as below.

Honolulu Tablet

The pictographs
have simply become more and more "hieratic"
i.e. more "cursive",
as writing always does with time.
