Early evidence bearing on two puzzles in hieroglyphic writing

Abstract:
An evaluation of evidence from texts of the Egyptian Old Kingdom and First Intermediate Period which can shed light on the development of the apparently illogical writing of the ancient Egyptian word for chair, and on the practice of adding the hieroglyph for life (ankh) before certain occurrences of royal names in textual environments, with discussion on whether or not this ankh sign should be read as part of the text.
