ḏj ꜥnḫ

EgyptianEdit

EtymologyEdit

Perfective passive participle of rḏj (to give) +‎ ꜥnḫ (life), thus ‘given life’. Unlike other such passive participial clauses, this one has been fossilized without any resumptive pronoun (a construction like *ḏj n.f ꜥnḫ would be expected).

PronunciationEdit

PhraseEdit

X8anx
  1. an epithet frequently added after the name of the reigning pharaoh

NounEdit

X8anx

 m

  1. a state of having been ‘given life (forever)’ achieved by the pharaoh
