    This upside-down inscription reminds me of the very funny incident in which
    the crank epigrapher Barry Fell claimed that an inscription on a lintel
    in Mexico was in the Kavi script and provided evidence of pre-Columbian
    contact with the old world. It turned out that if you turned it upside down (from
    Fell's point of view) it was in perfectly ordinary Spanish of the colonial
    period in a somewhat cursive version of the Roman alphabet.
