Odd Hieroglyph

Hi,
I've come across a glyph I do not recognise. http://www.eramm.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/images/crosses.jpg
It could be a variant of S166 and is a lady's name - anyone any ideas?
Kind regards,
Ned

Thanks Serge

Thanks Serge,
Your suggestion does make sense - even if calling a woman 'grinder' in English would get you a slap round the face!

Just a wild guess...

There's a word nḏ.t "flour", and the signs could possibly be U31 (I must admit that the hieratic shape of the sign, which I looked at,
was a bit far from the sign you have here... if it"s indeed U31, it's really a mix between the hieroglyphic shape and the hieratic one).

In this case, U31 being described by Gardiner as a baker's instrument, the name of the mother might be something like "Miller" ? (or, more appropriately, "Grinder" ?).

The stele is in Durham Oriental Museum

The Lady's name seems to begin 'Ndjet...'

Hi Serge,
The part of the inscription reads 'ḥmt.f nb.t pr.f nḏt X m3ʕt ḫrw' where this is X.

Have you got a photo with the sign in context ? it might help.
I would think of U31 also...
