Usage notes[edit]

The reading of this word and related words (including the preposition below) has recently been thrown into doubt. The traditional reading of tp is likely wrong; the New Kingdom reading was more likely dp, and the original reading may have been either dp or ḏp. However, some Egyptologists (e.g. Schweitzer) argue for the older reading.
