possibly we could make our own key from http://www.quizland.com/hiero.htm???
maybe the one in the pdf is another red herring

Tried that too. Got nothing. Laying it at an angle proved useless.

i think the hieroglyph wheel needs to be pinned with a smaller one on top - you could rotate the small wheel to get the right letter?  there's gotta be a second wheel.

Didn't we have to use a special red-iSight for an earlier mission?? Does somebody still have that? I dont, otherwise I'd check it myself...

what if you cut a slit from the edge to the dot, then you could sort of fold it and pull the edges of where you cut it over one another and it would do something... is this making any sense?

These are not Egyptian, they are probably made up pictures, the only decoder being that wheel.

whoa it almost looks like calculus, but then again if i am reading the second line correctly they had pi', to which the extent of my knowledge would be zero, but honestly, i just saw t" and thought second derivative, idk they also have the summation symbol, the greek capital letter "sigma" of alpha and beta...

in other words...i either have no clue or made a brilliant discovery, but i am almost positive it is that i have no clue...

The wheel is not Egyptian writing, but the image at perplexer under the top image is.

These symbols look Native American.

I'll bet that's it. It was the trick in the demo of the latest Myst game, IIRC. Some of the glyphs look like they're from there too.

And here I was trying to go for each combination of the letters the glyph was between wink

Something to point out that may come in handy later, if you look at the "image title"/alt tags on the olive images you get:

Chop and Drop
Death by Flying Dragon
Grain Harvest
Yellow Bunny
etc...

I found every symbol on the wheel, if it matters.

Some they do and some they don't and some you just can't tell.
  Some they will and some they won't and some it's just as well!

Looking at the letters directly across from the symbols instead of next to them isn't really nonsense, but w/e.

Man this math and glyphs!  I found that most of the stuff was under the Greek Keyboard.  But I don't think that comes into play here anymore.

You guys know... I use a Mac so I don't have to worry about Math and Glyphs!  This is like a Windows/Dos puzzle or maybe even Linus...LOL

the wrapped in bacon thing, although i don't know if the site is related, was an image before heist 6 went live (before glass with olive)
