This image were sent in by a visitor to Omniglot. Can any of you identify the symbols on it? They look like a writing system of some kind, but I don’t recognise it.

Rock with mysterious symbols

As we are not sure which way up it should be, the rock is shown both ways up.

    Some of the symbols look like some variant of Brahmi; perhaps Burmese or something like that.

    I’d also guess a southern Brahmī derivative. Sinhala? Can’t see any definite letters though.

    There is one symbol like this: o-o but in vertical way. I’m pretty sure I saw it this one somewhere on Omniglot but I can’t recall.

    Have to say it doesn’t look Brahmi to me. There’s no sense of basic letters being modified (or if there is I can’t see it). No idea what it could be though.
