Egyptian biliteral signs

Biliteral Egyptian hieroglyphs are symbols which represent a specific sequence of two consonants in the language. In the written Egyptian language, three types of hieroglyphs existed: those that represented one consonant (called uniliteral), those that represented two consonants (called biliteral) and those that represented three consonants (called triliteral).

In the following list, aleph is transliterated as 3, ayin as ˁ and yodh as ı͗.
