What's your opinion on the attached?

Don't you just hate it when that happens?, thats what happend to me
with my "Did I miss something" post, I thought it was going straight
to George. Good job I didn't say something controversial, heaven
forbid that should happen ;-)
So as this has now hit the list I might as well quote what it was I
said concerning the Yat-nebes glyph we have been passing around
between the three of us:
"The set of glyphs you just showed me is something different.
You may run this by Marianne, but I would say this particular set of
glyphs is the name of a city, not a pool.
The "n" (wavy line) has nothing to do with the set of three wavy lines
in the other glyph. In this case the single wavy line is a phonogram
meaning you pronounce it as "n". You also have a lower-leg pronounced
"b" followed by a role of carpet, pronounced "s", hence "n-b-s"
(tree). It is interesting that the last glyph (crossed-circle) denotes
a settlement (town/city). Because of that I would say this is a
settlement simply called "n-b-s" as in the tree nebes, not a mound of
trees and certainly nothing to do with water or pools.
Think of it this way, a mound with a settlement on top, like a tell,
that is called the name of a tree. Remember Biblical Elim named after
palm-trees? - I think this is much the same, see what Marianne says."
