Amazing Chinese Characters (430) Anti- or Against or Reverse - 反

 The bronze script of character Anti- or Counter is

We see character Factory or Plant, which means Cliff here. A hand is under 厂, which means a person who is climbing the cliff. The action is against the cliff, so it means Anti-, or Against, or Reverse, or Counter, etc.

The big seal script of character Anti- or Against is

Similar to bronze script.

The small seal script of the character is
Similar to older scripts.

The clerical script of the cheater is

The bottom 又 - character Again (Post 102) means Hand, same as the older scripts. But there is no 厂, even though looks like, but there are two left falling stroke connected, not two straight lines right tangle connected. It is very subtle. But the difference is existed.
Same as the clerical script.

Its Pinyin is Fan3.
