Amenemipt cubit rod
by Simon at 09:29 23/02/06 (Blogs::Simon)
Note to self: find a real picture of this artefact and check the hieroglyphs match the transcription shown.

It's a second millenium BC measuring rod from Egypt with clearly marked divisions that are obviously related to a mathematical sequence, but most of the symbols are not yet understood.
