possible coptic inscription
« on: 01 October , 2013, 01:39:48 AM »

I don't read Coptic. I have this inscribed piece of jewelry. It looks like it might be Coptic to me. Can you confirm? Can you read this? I thought the letter on the top left was a chima/qima. Can you read this/interpret it? The other side of this piece of jewelry has a standard ΧΡ-ΑΩ inscription ("Jesus Christ is everything" [literally "A-Z"]"

Its not very clear Alex.
The two letters at the bottom look like NS
There are no letter that look like S in Coptic
The letter to the right look like T but with its left line extended into a circle no Coptic letter has that shape
Sima in Coptic is written exactly like the letter C so I don't think the one on the top left is Sima
