Ivory and wooden tablets from Abydos
Signs on tablets might mean the names of places, products or persons. The tablets clearly have a primarily economic use.

UC 15463. Bone plaque with two huts; the reading is uncertain. Perhaps this is really just a picture of two huts (Petrie 1901: pl. IV.11 from tomb B17 in Abydos).
