Drew Egyptian Demotic and Hieratic scripts, and the hieroglyphs from which the Hieratic glyphs were derived. Also drew Coptic and Ogham. Ogham is nice and simple. Hieroglyphs are very slow to draw because they are complex and require accuracy (and I don't know the stroke order). Hieratic script is pretty. Coptic is derived from Greek with some Hieratic glyphs added to the mix. Coptic psi, phi and alpha look nice in the floral font.
