Abstract Some theophoric Egyptian names of the Old Kingdom mentioning the god Ptah have the peculiarity to present retrograde written forms of the god's name Ptah. An exam case by case reveals a link between written form and iconography: the name of the Memphite divinity faces the persons bearing such personal names.
