In addition to the anachronism in this particular example, what
you've said doesn't make sense. In Ogham, you'd write (using feather
marks here) >-U-S-A-< and in bottom to top orientation that whole
string would be rotated with the U toward the bottom and the A toward
What you described would just be wrong.
