    Default Tetragrammatron grid

    There are 23 symbols and the spread looks pretty good for an english cryptographic message. Perhaps a little flat.
    Code:
    ABCDEFGHIJ
    KLKMJKNOPO
    JQHRSTRDRA
    UJDHIIVEVP
    BOJIDCONKN
    IAVKJMAHSV
    FRGLHDJOIP
    BRIOTWIWHI
    JVDGDQGWKF
    MGULIOIENH
    But this way up as given doesn't give a message. Should the grid be rotated? Or broken into parts?

    Tetragrammaton, apologies.

    Interesting that that word is spelt with missing vowels which is how the hieroglyphs is solved.

    What word is spelled with missing vowels? And how did you get letters for all the greek symbols??? This is way over my head

    The Tetragrammaton is a name for the Hebrew word for god JHVH (4 letters) the vowels are added to make JEHOVAH, and lots of variations. This is the same as how to get Eratosthenes name from the Hieroglyphs.

    The letters from the (mainly) greek symbols are just arbitrary. I transcribed them so that you can quickly check in a cryptogram solving program whether there is an english message using a monoalphabetic cipher.

    The particular letters i've given to the symbols have no bearing on the symbol itself.

    You made a mistake in transcribing the symbols. Row number 8 should be:

    BRIOTWIHHI

    And no, I didn't translate the symbols myself; at least not now. I had done it days ago. I got nowhere treating the text as either a cryptogram or anagram. I tried the Vegenere cipher too, but I could try some more work on that.

    Good luck.

    thanks

    i think maybe the SATOR (5*5) square may be useful here somehow
