This hypothetical stela had 18 lines.

An image was made of it to scale.

2  The full scale image then had reference numbers added to each line.


The image below is the transcribed text from the photograph. It is an image here, but in the working situation, you would be looking at typed hieroglyphs. Those of you with a program that types Hebrew, Greek, Arabic or Hydrographic fonts, would be looking at typed fonts in the example below.

Recreating the original text using the standard fonts

Top line, the original foreign/ancient text

Directly below is the translation of the ancient text


18 lines in the original ancient text

18 lines of translations

Each line of ancient text has the translation (using the same reference number)

Close up the way it would appear
10 Top typed ancient text using a standard font
10 Below typed translation
If the ancient source was given the title: Josephus Stela and I wanted to point out that there was one female grand daughter that entered into Egypt, my statement would be something like
Josephus Stela:10 Israel had one grand daughter that entered into Egypt
When ever any one has knowledge that exists in the bible, quran, torah ... they quote the source and the location in that source.
Genesis 46:8-26
In my this hypothetical stela, given the official title Joseph Stela, the reference is Josephus Stela:line number where my information exists.
So far we have two parts completed
A full scale image of the original source with reference numbers added.
A word processor file with fonts to create the same glyphs and below each glyph line is the translation.
Before we get to the translation part, we must do the transcribing part.
