155 The boy studied the Hieroglyphic Alphabet

Egyptian Hieroglyph was a writing system used by the ancient Egyptians.  The writing system or Alphabet was mostly used for religious literature which was engraved on tombs or even clay pots.  The word Hieroglyph originates from the Greek adjective, Hieroglyphikos.  Hiero (sacred) and Glypho ( I carve; engrave).  The Alphabet was made up of characters that resemble animals or objects or unique symbols that may convey certain meanings.      alt 

During Ragtime ancient Egyptian discoveries such as discoveries of Hieroglyphics were rising and Americans were very much interested in the discoveries.  In the book, the boy was very intrigued with hieroglyphics.  Emma Goldman believed that the boy was one of the chosen ones.
