What language is written on this pyramid? It was made in Egypt. All of my searches for ancient Egyptian languages have come up with hieroglyphs which do not match the marks. Can someone help me with this?

It looks a bit like a stylized form of Egyptian Hieratic, but it may just be faked.

What is the origin of this artifact?

Looks very eastern, I wouldn't be surprised if it were from the far mid east or even China. I couldnt find an exact match, however my guess would be something like proto-arabic or farsi something like that

Received it from a friend who bought it in some souvenir shop in Egypt, sometime in the 80's. Had a sticker saying "Made in Egypt", but this lends no credibility to the markings being a real language. Your picture is the closest looking to writing I've come across.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll look into those.

From my initial searches, it seems too crude to be ancient arabic.

I had one of these. It's just a tourist souvenir.

I'm >>275038 and that's what I figured it was but it must be some real language on there

Looks like Demotic script, the laymans hierogyphs in ancient Egypt. Likely some text from the Rosetta stone

OP here, that looks the closest out of all the things I've seen. I didn't even think to reference the Rosetta Stone, thanks!

No. It's very likely that someone just wrote some signs with the intention of having them look vaguely like hieroglyphs without actually knowing any.
