I'm wondering if anyone's taken a look at the unsolved 340 cypher:

Image

A previous cypher was solved by a schoolteacher in a few hours. The first cypher was a letter substitution code with each letter being substituted by one of a few symbols. In each occurrence of the letter, the next symbol in it's group is used.

Image

example: I's symbol set is (delta) - (capital P) - (capital U) - (backwards k) and back to delta

There are paid pro's trying to crack these all the time, I think that the only one solved was that example you used. They are ment to be the most difficult to crack since the key could be anything!
