Let's review:
- You see the hieroglyph above the lamp.
- Click the dictionary on it and part is translated; the rest cannot be decoded.
- look close at the part that cannot be translated.
- solve it like any cryptogram. There is no easy way like you want.

You can copy the solution from the picture I posted.

- look close at the part of the hieroglyph that you cannot decode.
- you will see the above puzzle - without the solution.
- now click on a letter at top of screen and place it under the glyph that it corresponds to or you decoded or as you can see from the solution in the picture above.

luck

There should be letters at top of puzzle screen.
You click on a letter and then click under the glyph you want to place it on.

Are you in close up?
Are you seeing the puzzle that is shown in above picture (without solution of course)?

Robert, I believe MaG is referring to the screenshot a few posts above.

The unsolved portions are made up of (hiero)glyphs.
You place the letters under them like in the picture posted above.

when i look at the unsolved portion, i see words like 'shdiso' or 'sfiche' etc. these are NOT glyphs just jumbled up ?words?. how does one make any sense out of this? no wonder i am befuddled. robert.

If what you're seeing is jumbled words then it sounds as if you're part way through solving the puzzle, but some of the letters are in the wrong places and need to be changed.

Here's a YouTube video which might help -- it shows the solving of a number of hieroglyphs in the game, and perhaps the one you're stuck on is among them:

Hieroglyph solves

At the least it will show you the process of solving these type of puzzles.

If you see those words - see if you can change the letters to the correct ones as shown by the solution picture.

Click a wrong letter and then click the letter from the top that you want change it with.
