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)

KRYPTOS Sculpture LexiLine? Logo CIA, Langley, Virginia

This is a decipherment website - and this was just another puzzle to try to solve.

In the public front of CIA Headquarters
at Langley, Virginia, USA,
there is a huge copper sculpture by Jim Sanborn.

The sculpture is named

It is covered on one side with lines of letters
written in the following fashion.

sample KRYPTOS lines below

The KRYPTOS sculpture has many such lines of alphabet with the word KRYPTOS "set off" sideways in each line. This side of the sculpture contains no other text. Did you note that the letters of KRYPTOS, i.e. K, R, Y, P, T, O and S are left out of the order of alphabets above? The word KRYPTOS is important. The order of the alphabet per line above is also staggered sideways one letter at a time with respect to the line above it. Why?

The other side of the Sanborn Sculpture (not pictured) is written in apparently coded script. The first 21 letters of the coded script in order are:

Cracking the Code of Kryptos
The Sanborn secret code has not been deciphered.
Is it possible to crack this code? The answer is surely yes
- and the Sanborn Sculpture itself may tell us how to do it.
That in any case is the theory.

(Try to crack it with a computer and you have little chance,
unless you already know how it was encrypted. Somebody at MIT tried to crack it with a super-computer and came up with a decoy solution of gibberish.)

What is the KRYPTOS Solution?

In our opinion, the letters of the word KRYPTOS
are the solution's begin.
These letters are alphabetically ordinal
in terms of numbers.

This means that
since the letter K is letter 11 of the alphabet,
K has a value of 11
for the decipherment solution.

Similarly, R = 18, Y = 25, P = 16, T = 20, O = 15 and S= 19.

We now apply these values
to the ciphered letters of the sculpture.

Taking the first three coded letters E, M and U,
for example, we then shift their values as alphabetic
letters that number of places to the right
which corresponds to their Kryptos-number.

Using the value of the first letter of Kryptos K=11,
we shift the first letter of the ciphered text, E,

11 letters to the right.
This gives P.

We then do the same for M,
moving its value 18 letters to the right
(We do this since the second letter of Kryptos
R, is 18).
Moving 18 positions gives E.

We then shift the letter U a full 25 letters to the right(since the third letter of Kryptos, Y, is 25.
This gives T, and so on.

We then place these
and the rest of the letters of the ciphered text

- each on their own subsequent lines -

and append the rest of the alphabet after each of them,
one line under the other,
just as on the Kryptos sculpture.

A possible deciphered starting solution (?)
is then found with the reading:

"Ape-Man [GVK?-man] in a Job" [GVK? is an unknown]
- within a direct but staggered vertical reading of the lines -
indicating that the Sanborn Sculpture
is a ciphered homage
to CIA agents at work,
whoever, and wherever they may be.

That at least is our decipherment.
Is it correct?
We will probably never know.

The Starting Solution to the Sanborn Sculpture
Code at CIA Headquarters is thus ... perhaps ...
