Alphabetic writing is one of the principal features of Western culture. Our knowledge of the early history, development and spread of the alphabet is constantly changing. This introduction to West Semitic epigraphy and palaeography is divided into six sections: Introduction, The Rise of the Semitic Script, The South Semitic Scripts, The West Semitic Scripts, The Development of the Latter Aramaic Offshoots, and The Antiquity of the Greek Alphabet.
