Builds upon Parpola and Schildmann's assumptions
September 5, 2006 - Published on Amazon.com

Hasenpflug assumes like two of his well known predecessors that the pictorial billinguals contain the names of the animal shown in the picture. He then proceeds to read the name in the direction the animal is looking. The results are fairly consistant for the seals shown in the book. The famous fish sign stands for "sa" with vowel variations like si, su depicted with distinguishing marks on top. The phonetic signs learned from the first step were used to decipher pictograms with presumabley no text on them. I am not sure how this was done. The decipherment does not warrant all the conclusions, especially reagrding Rama's reign, reached by the author.
