Hieratic is a writing system used in pharaonic Egypt that developed along side the hieroglyphic system,Goedicke 1988:viiâ€“viii. to which it is intimately related. It was primarily written in ink with a reed brush on papyrus, allowing scribes to write quickly without resorting to the time consuming Hieroglyphs. The word hieratic derives from the Greek phrase (grammata hieratika; literally "priestly writing"), which was first used by Saint Clement of Alexandria in the second century AD,Goedicke 1988:vii; Wente 2001:2006.
