Or, failing that, "Fish". Need it for a project but really struggling to find anything definitive online. Thank you!

  • Fishers are native to northern North America, so it's unlikely that the ancient Egyptians would have encountered them. – Spencer May 8 at 23:14

Hieroglyphs.net is a two-way online English to Hieroglyphs translation dictionary.

It gives translations of:

  • fish:

  • fisherman:

When I requested a translation for fisher it gave me only the result above for fisherman.

Preserving the comment below by sempaiscuba♦:

If you're interested, Paul Dickson's Dictionary of Middle Egyptian is available online as a searchable pdf file. There are multiple options for fish /fisherman depending on context. Of course, the Old- and Late-Egyptian languages have other variants, but that kind of thing happens when your civilisation lasts more than three millennia!
