Egyptian demotic

The Egyptian Demotic script is an ancient writing system developed around 650 BCE, primarily used for the Egyptian language during its Demotic phase. It found extensive usage across various sectors including administrative, literary, and documentational purposes in both native Egyptian and Greek cultures until its decline around the 5th century CE. In modern technology, representation of Demotic is sparse, with few specialized fonts and software enabling its display. Its evolution is not attributed to a single author but is seen as a natural progression from earlier Egyptian scripts.
