Triliteral Egyptian hieroglyphs are orthographic symbols which represent a specific sequence of three hieroglyphs in the language[1]

In the written Egyptian language, three types of hieroglyphs existed: those that represented one consonant (called uniliterals, the alphabetic signs), those that represented two, (called biliteral) and those that represented three, (called triliteral).
