A font for Egyptian hieroglyphs
Aegyptus encodes over 7000 hieroglyphs.
There is no standard for Egyptian Hieroglyphs or Meroitic, so they are allocated in the Supplementary Private Use Plane 15. The font also covers Basic Latin, Egyptian Transliteration characters, some Punctuation and other Symbols, and the Gardiner set of 1071 Egyptian Hieroglyphs, now suppored by The Unicode Standard 5.2 in the new SMP block 13000 - 1342F.
It was created by George Douros, mainly based on the book Hieroglyphica, PIREI I², 2000.

- It'd be mighty nice to convince the author to add his licensing info in the zip (as a detached txt file)
Needed to complete our Unicode coverage. Plus, the fonts are very nice.
