How do I write the ama-gi symbol as text in latex?

amagi

For ``hegemon'' in ancient greek I can use

\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage[greek,english]{babel}
\textgreek{ἡγεμονία} 

I'd like to be able to do something similar for ama-gi

As I'm sure you know, Ama-gi is a Sumerian word written, in your question, in Classical Sumerian Cuneiform. So we just need a suitable Sumerian font. Now, as you probably know, these - they aren't a dime a dozen. I've managed to find a cuneiform font for the purposes of an MWE, although this font is designed for Akkadian rather than Sumerian. The two languages are very similar, from what I can tell, but I know very little about them. As a result, I'm not sure whether the differences between the symbol in my font, and the symbol in the question are meaningful differences caused by my not having a Sumerian font, or whether it's a meaningless design choice, but you can shop around for a font that suits your needs.

Compile with xelatex

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{fontspec}

\newfontfamily{\SU}{Akkadian}
\newfontfamily{\GR}[Script=Greek]{Linux Libertine O}

\begin{document}

{\SU 𒂼𒄄} {\GR ἡγεμονία}

\end{document}

Next time, please come up with a minimal working example. This site is a webpage when you have tried all you can, but you are stuck. Please don't use it as a please-do-it-for-me website.

Here, "I" wrote the whole svg picture into a PSTricks file (ok, got me, I only used the Inkscape2PSTricks function):

But honestly, \includegraphics is the way to go. You could, of course, write it with tikz. But that takes time and is totally unnecessary. But if you want to do that, you are welcome to. You could create one of those nails, rotate and resize it till you have the picture you want to. As I already said: it takes time and is unnecessary. If you still want to, you should try to learn Tikz. But honestly, Tikz is mostly used to create graphics in science, and not for art work. You might consider using a art program to create the amagi symbol - or just copy it.

And next time, please come with a minimal working example. People here offer their spare time to help. You are welcome to get help here, but please, don't do ask people to do the job for you :-)

Hope my answer helped!

Kind regards!

  • Thank you for the comment @Ralph. I have updated my question with an example of what I am trying to do. – Jordan Feb 16 '17 at 12:40
