Drew a complete blank on hieroglyph. Should have known that.

Agree. I was thinking of an ankh, eye or Horus, etc. given the clue. "Ancient Egyptian writing" would have been much clearer.

I agree. It took me forever to get hieroglyph because of the wording. I was also thinking like "ankh, eye of Horus, scarab... none of these begin with H".

GULAG is a system of labor camps, not a single labor camp. And Gulag prison-camps were not just in Siberia, but throughout USSR. Should be replaced with "Soviet forced-labor camp system".

And in colloquial use, a gulag is an individual camp. We like to keep the clues short:

p.s. I highly recommend Anne Applebaum's "Gulag: A History".

Alexander the Great's dad? I think he called him "Pop." Hey, it fits the criteria and who can say for sure what he called him?

Noticed in the very last second that there are letter clues out to the left. That would have been useful.
