It has been established that the inscription around the pedestal of the bronze statue of the sphinx was written in the archaic Greek alphabet. However, the phonetic values of the Greek alphabet reflect text that does not make sense in Greek.
Therefore, the meaning of the inscription has puzzled scientists since the discovery of the artifact in the early 19th century. According to a study by scientists, the inscription on the Sphinx has finally been deciphered. This is a short and unusual verse.
«The symbols may seem mysterious at first, but once the mirror image is noticed, they are easily recognized as letters of the Greek alphabet, and some of them have an archaic form», — said the author of the study, Professor Peter Revesz.
This is what the translation says: «Behold, behold, worship: here is the holy lion», which can be perceived as an order to worship the Sphinx .
«The deciphered verse is notable in that the cult of the Sphinx was not part of the mainstream Roman mythology, which features the Roman gods and goddesses with whom today many people are familiar», — Revesz said.
Recall that it was previously reported that the search for alien life: scientists have presented a radically new method .
