This article argues that Sinai 345 is a dedicatory inscription produced by Semitic speakers during a joint Egyptian-Semitic mining expedition to Serabit el-Khadem. As such, it reflects both Egyptian and Northwest Semitic culture. It is written in an Egyptian influenced variety of Northwest Semitic, but uses a Northwest Semitic dedicatory formula.
