Meroitic Cursive

U+109A0 – U+109FF   (68000–68095)

The Meroitic Cursive range was introduced with version 6.1.0 of the Unicode Standard, and is located in Plane 0, the Basic Multilingual Plane.

The Meroitic script was used to write the Meroitic language of the Kingdom of Meroë in what is now Sudan. The script existed in 2 forms, one cursive and the other epigraphic monumental. The cursive form was written right to left, top to bottom.

The characters that appear in the “Character” columns of the following table depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages.

There are no Unicode fonts designed specifically for Meroitic.

To see exactly which characters are included in a particular font, you can use a utility such as Andrew West’s BabelMap, or WunderMoosen’s FontChecker.

If you are not familiar with the characters, you can check the characters displayed here with the graphical display at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U109A0.pdf.
