aramese script

In the course of the 12th and 11th centuries BC the Aramese who lived in the north of Syria, adopted the Fenician alphabet and adapted it to their own language. Even if the Aramese never became a major political power, their language and script would transcend the boundaries and be in use until the first centuries of christianity. The Aramese script was also the basis of a great number of alphabetical systems that were in use in various areas of the East and in different time periods.
