- Pr (hieroglyph)
Pr is the hieroglyph for 'house', the floor-plan of a walled building with an open doorway. Though its original pronunciation is unknown, modern egyptology assigns it the value of Per.
Pr combined with an associated "personal
name", god, or location becomes the "House of .... ." An example for pharaoh Setnakhteis the city of: Pr-Atum, (city of Pithom).
The shape of "Pr" in beginning dynasties had variations in the shape of a square, with the opening. See Garrett Reference for tomb of "Official Ti".
