hittitic script

Around 1500 BC the low reliefs and stone plates in Anatolia and Syria showed a script that had both pictographic and phonetic signs. This script, also called Hittitic hieroglyphs (the discussion about this alternative name is still being held), has 220 characters of which 60 are syllabic (phonetic), some determinative and the rest pictographic. The Hittitic script is written from right to left, although it can sometimes be found as being written from left to right.
