Sunday Stamps | E for Egyptian Hieroglyphs

Egypt, 2002-2005
Egyptian Art

Sorry for the bad quality of the image. I received these stamps from Egypt long time ago, and I thought that Egyptian hieroglyphs could be a good theme for letter E of Sunday Stamps.

Have you noticed how often the Ancient Egypt (and the hieroglyphs!) appear on stamps from countries other that Egypt?

United Kingdom, 1982
Information Technology

Hungary, 2013
The 200th Anniversary of the Birth of
Giuseppe Verdi
(This is an audible stamp!)

Brazil, 2010
Diplomatic Relations Brazil-Egypt,
Temple of Abu Simbel

The Netherlands, 2010
25th Anniversary of the company Djoser
(More information, in Dutch)


  1. indeed i haven't noticed how often egypt is represented on other nations' stamps - a great idea for this sunday :)

  2. Fun topic, and what a nice mini-collection of stamps.

  3. Creative topic. I love it!

  4. I am glad that you have liked the theme! :D

  5. Love the Verdi stamp. Egyptian hieroglyphs are both fascinating beautiful.

  6. This prompts me to pay more attention in the details of the stamps I have to appreciate them more.

    1. One thing I love about "Sunday Stamps" is that it makes me look more carefully to stamps!

  7. I haven't really received a lot of mail from Egypt, even though I don't consider it like some super rare country.
    Hieroglyphs have always fascinated me but I haven't really noticed them being used on other countries stamps.... till now.

  8. I hadn't seen the GB Information Technology stamp before - and never expected to make the connection to hieroglyphs.

    1. I think it's a beautiful and meaningful stamp.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
