Talk:Ancient Egyptian medicine
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
I like this topic, and I plan to clean up the article. I've pushed down the old version under General Overview and I plan to write better versions on the various topics in their own sections, and then delete them from the general section. Eventually I'll cover everything in the general section and delete it. I'd be happy for any help. MickWest 23:55, 10 September 2005 (UTC)
"History of swnw"
- "The ancient Egyptian word for doctor is swnw. There is a long history of swnw in ancient Egypt."
Is that a history of the profession or history of the word? -Pgan002 05:45, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
Pronunciation of "swnw"
How is the word pronounced? -Pgan002 05:46, 8 February 2007 (UTC)
- All Egyptian pronunciation is assumed, there were no native speakers of Ancient Egyptian since the Rosetta Stone was discovered. But sunu (soo-noo) is what would be assumed. KV(Talk) 17:26, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
