  • The Metropolitan Museum of Arts Egyptian Hieroglyphic Ballpoint Pen. It was a form of writing known as “the speech of the gods,” often used for religious inscription and therefore called hieroglyphs, or holy carvings. The Egyptians used this script for more than three millennia, through the end of the third century A.D. For the most part it was the province of priests, as only the well educated could read and write hieroglyphs.

    This most ancient form of written communication often used pictures to “spell” words. A wavy line meant water. Other times two or more unrelated pictures combined to create a concept. An English-language equivalent would be conjoining the pictures of a bee and a leaf to convey “belief".

    Our pen, with its four-sided tapered barrel, suggests the shape of the obelisk, the stone monument on which the Egyptians carved many hieroglyphs. But these hieroglyphs were taken from a different stone design—a false door belonging to Metjetji, a noble during the reign of King Unis (ca. 2353-2323 B.C.). The glyphs are part of a traditional offering inscription and depict, among other images, a snake, a jackal, several birds, and the wavy line meaning water.

    The ballpoint pen twists to open and close.
