    Yes, dirty. I know this.

    What do these symbols represent?

    my guess is Egyptian hieroglyphics. a "Rosetta stone" design on rug. translating ancient Egyptian into Arabic and some other language--maybe Hebrew.

    It's a board game. You have to be bored to play it.

    No Hebrew words that I recognize.
    However, it may say in Assyrian- I kill the first man who cleans me.

    Am I too late, Richard?

    Egyptian. Translated it. Roughly came out to this.

    1st vertical column : "His Bank" or "Punk"
    2nd column: "I am confused" or "Brocade"
    3rd Column: "Take a look"
    4th Column: "and Mahsthal"

    I know that doesn't help much, but it was fun to figure out.

    Yeah, my translation comes out roughly “Don’t listen to toad lickers.”

    Weird
