Wild skill icons (?) can be played to satisfy the cost of Archaic Glyph's action.


From the v1.1 FAQ:


(1.9) Wild (?) Skill Icons

A Wild (?) skill icon on a player card may be used to match any other skill icon for the purposes of both card abilities and counting how many matching icons are committed to a skill test. When using Wild icons for the purpose of resolving a card ability, a player must state which icon the Wild is matching at the time the card is used. Wild icons committed to a skill test are considered “matching” icons for the purposes of card abilities.
