The Meroitic sign qo

The word qo is a honorific. The word qo in Meroitic means “noble, honor or honorable”. The term qo, can also mean ‘to live, to be renewed, restore’. The term qor means ‘monarch’ , qori ‘female royal’ and qore ‘male royal’. The term qor is made into an adjective with the addition of the suffix –o: qor-o ‘respectable, virtuous, and lordly’.

As a result of my decipherment of Meroitic you can find more Meroitic terms at the following website:
