I have deciphered Meroitic based on the most logical path to the decipherment of any dead language. Maurice Pope (1975) , made it clear that before a dead language can be deciphered you most have the right theoretical structure to base your inquiry upon (p.191). There were three preliminary conditions that must be met before any decipherment: 1) confidence that a script can be deciphered; 2) location of proper names must be determined; the grammatical rules of the target language must be known
The Deciphermnet of Meroitic
" Isis and Osiris the eternal. Tabiye to live forever. Down the good path the patron's grand gift prays (for a new) life (and) a great rebirth. The noble (has) passed away. The great teacher prays (that) the patron's Kha will indeed be reborn. Give restorat(ion) of the Ba (and the) grand innerheart down the path (of righteousness for) the patron".
