Did a quick ride to Spectrum to further discuss internal wiring on my "Internationaal" project. Currently this is the only bike (out of 7) that is ready to ride!

Ok I am spelling challenged and was rushing of to a design review..... but still tough audience. I take it that it is a Babylonian cuneiform clay tablet. From there.... my best guess possible restoration work....I see what looks like wax, latex, resin at the middle left. Other than that, my flight of fancy is that you are a high end brewing researcher and this is an ancient beer recipe that you are trying to resurrect.

Late to the thread, sure someone else already noted this, but it looks like cuneiform to me. Which means ancient Mesopotamian? I think?
