  • Aoineko (français, English, 日本語) (please leave messages here)
  • Samuel (Chinese), I will try to help, but don't expect too much, I am not an expert, besides, I can read only English and Chinese. ;p (Leave me messages here)
  • Mats, Swedish, messages here. Like Samuel, I'm not an expert, but I've been writing some articles on mythology.
  • Iustinus. My energy is spread very thin already, however I should probably be the contact person for La:, as how to say such-and-such an Egyptian name in Latin is one of my areas of interest. My native language is English, but I will also accept messages in Latin, French, and so on.

The goal of this part is to enable users to share free pictures. I planned to create 2 pages, one with only links, and one other with all pictures (very heavy I think). Perhaps, in the future, it may be better to organize those pictures by theme.

Hieroglyphs editorEdit

WikiHiero is a tool to generate hieroglyph text in WikiSyntax (tables & images) from a text written according to Hieroglyph coding manual syntax. WikiHiero (0.2.7) is running at Feel free to make tests with hieroglyphs-codes.

For example, <-p:t-o-l:m-i-i-s->! may be rendered as fr:Image:Ptolemee2.png. The lastest version can be found at

Gods' namesEdit

I planned to create a big table to show "official" transliteration and local language translation. Aoineko

Create local projectEdit

To create a new Egyptology project for your local Wikipedia, go to your WikiProject page (like en:Wikipedia:WikiProject) and add a link to the new page. You can call it as you want (for example, fr:Wikipedia:Egyptopedia). Add your page here, in the List of locals projects.

Feel free to organize your project as you want, but if you want some advice, here is a page model:
