Phoenician Unicode Script

The Canaanite and Aramaic inscriptions found all over the Mediterranean region have contributed to contemporary knowledge of the Phoenician alphabet. The Phoenician civilisation is where the term originates. Because it is an early development of the Proto- or Old Canaanite- or Proto-Sinaitic script into a linear, purely alphabetic script, the Phoenician alphabet is also known as the Early Linear script (in a Semitic context, unrelated to Minoan writing systems). This marks the transition from a multidirectional writing system, where a variety of writing directions occurred, to a regulated horizontal, right-to-left script. The Proto-Canaanite, Old Canaanite, or Proto-Sinaitic script, used in the latter stages of the Late Bronze Age, is the alphabet's immediate predecessor and is the earliest fully developed alphabet. It was derived from Egyptian hieroglyphs.
