Pharaonic uses [ edit ]
The pharaoh is often shown in
reliefs or in cartouche-related statements as Lord of the Two Lands. The basket hieroglyph is used as 'lord', or 'king'. Queens, or goddesses use the 'lordess' form, the feminine implied from the "t" hieroglyph but not needed for the basket. The basket is used for either.
A distinctive use of the
is in the
for the word "everything". One common portrayal is with
sieve, 't', basket
, for "everything", or "all things".
The Rosetta Stone also uses just the
, for "every", "all", "everything", as well as multiple uses for just the word "lord".
