  1 Two unique Indus Script hypertexts signify k  āraṇī  , ‘ supercargo-s ’   kol    ‘ smelters ’  of two ores bica  'haematite', loh  'copper' In Indus Script Corpora, there are two hypertexts 'having (two) ears' as superscripts on Sign 51, Signs 325, 326 and 327. The two 'ears' superscripted have unique and distinctive orthography. One ear is shaped like an arrow or ear of a mammal. The other ear is shaped with three short linear strokes in a cartouche. The arrow superscript signifies   कारणी   or  कारणीक    k  āraṇī  , k  āraṇīka  'supercargo'. The three linear strokes signify kolom 'three' rebus: kolimi, 'smithy, forge'. Sign 51 Signs325, 326, 327 and variants The superscript hieroglyph shaped like an arrow or ear is hieroglyph:  कण  , 'a kind of arrow'. The superscript hieroglyph shaped with three short linear strokes in a cartouche is like a fish til or an antelope's short tail:  xolā   'fish-tail' rebus: kol 'working in iron'   kolle  'blacksmith' kolhe  'smelter'.   Hieroglyph 'three short liner strokes' (as shown on the tail of antelope on Kalibangan Seal K-34A): kolom  'three' rebus: kolimi '  smithy, forge'. Thus, the two superscript hieroglyphs signify 1. kol,  'smith, forge-blower and smelter'; and 2.    कारणी   or  कारणीक   'supercargo'.  2 Thus, together with the superscript hieroglyphs, the hypertext of the hieroglyph-compositions read: 1. copper smelter, copper supercargo; 2. haematite smelter, haematite supercargo. Hieroglyph:  कण   [p= 257,2] m.  a kind of arrow (the top being shaped like an ear) L. (cf.  कणक    n. ); the act of splitting , breaking through T. Hieroglyph:  कणक   [p= 257,2] mfn.  having ears , having large or long ears W. Rebus:  कणक   having a helm W.; m.  a steersman W. karṇadhāra   m. ʻ helmsman ʼ Suśr. [kárṇa -- , dhāra  -- 1] Pa. kaṇṇadhāra  -- m. ʻ helmsman ʼ; Pk.   kaṇṇahāra  -- m. ʻ helmsman, sailor ʼ; H. kanahār    m. ʻ helmsman, fisherman ʼ.(CDIAL 2836)  The Meluhha word for the expression, 'having ears' is:  कणक  . Thus, I suggest that Signs 51 and 327 (Mahadevan Sign List with comparable Sign Lists of Parpola) have to be read rebus with this suffix treating the 'ears' as superscript, as  कणक   'steersman, helmsman'. Precise responsibilities are that of supercargo, a representative of the ship's owner on board a merchant ship, responsible for overseeing the cargo and its sale.:   कारणी   or  कारणीक   (p. 91)  kāraṇī or   kāraṇīka  a (  कारण   S) That causes, conducts, carries on, manages. Applied to the prime minister of a state, the supercargo of a ship &c. (Marathi) The basic signs 'having ears' are: hieroglyph 'scorpion' and hieroglyph 'ficus (leaf)'. The Meluhha words which signify these hieroglyphs are: bicha 'scorpion' rebus: bica  'haematite, ferrite ore' loa  'f  icus glomerata ' rebus: loh  'copper ore'. That bica signifies a ferrite ore is signified by the expression: me r  ̥ ed bica   ‘ iron stone ore ’, wherein the word me r  ̥ ed signifies 'ferrite ore'. bica  'stone ore' (Mu.); hematite ore. meṛed  -bica = 'iron (hematite) stone ore' (Santali)  3 The two hypertexts indicate that there are two distinct supercargo's: one responsible for the 'scorpion' cargo and the other responsible for the 'ficus' cargo -- that is, haematite ore cargo and copper ore cargo, respectively. Orthographically, Sign 51 glyph is a ‘scorpion’; Sign 327 glyph is a ‘ficus glomerata leaf’. The glosses for the ‘sound values’ are, respectively: bica ‘scorpion’ (Santali), lo ‘ficus’ (Santali).  V326 (Mahadevan Orthographic variants of Sign 326) V327 (Orthographic variants of Sign 327) Parpola Sign variants Sign 51 Variants.
