Hi Matt,

*Or both.*

You are probably right about the Serekh being horiz. due to the length of the inscription within, can't say I've ever seen one in horiz. fashion, but I mainly study Pre, and Early Ds.

(Someone had given me good advice on learning AE Glyphs, etc, [study MK, and it will help w/ OK and NK trans.] but, I've tried, and gave up a few times....I tend to do better w/ OK, and earlier, and I tend to oversimplify, and see all the symbols as 'pictograms', etc.)

I do see the evolution of the written language, even though I can't decipher it.

Not sure where/how I came to this, but I think the oils were used in real life and applied to the skin, and possibly used in the Embalming process as well, and the symbolic aspect is also a possibility. (Tut's tomb did have many vessels that contained oils, etc. and were viewed as valuable enough for the Tomb-robber to take, along w/ the gold objects, etc.)

Their use w/ a wick is a possibility, as some are flammable.

Seems unlikely they were poured into the 7 holes, would be messy, and some may turn rotten over time.

EDIT: I just noticed that the lower portions of all the holes were not smoothed, or polished as the rest of the table is.

Regards, W
