      The principal scientific advisor named in the opening credits is Chicago's Egyptologist George R. Hughes, so it's likely that Ray Bowman had a hand in designing the tablets. De Mille published a book on the accuracy of the representation of ancient Egypt, and it may be that there's an authored chapter on that topic in it. A copy (probably George Hughes's own) is preserved in the Oriental Institute Library, and it was probably widely distributed by the publicity agents.

      Does anyone know who designed the (pseudo-) archaizing Hebrew script of the tablets of the law in the film "The Ten Commandments" with Charlton Heston from 1956?

      Thanks in advance,
      Reinhard G. Lehmann
