Old Sogdian Unicode Script
The Old Sogdian script appears in manuscripts and inscriptions dated between the 4th to 7th centuries. The earliest manuscripts containing the script are known as ‘Sogdian Ancient Letters’. These paper documents were found in 1907 by Aurel Stein in Dunhuang, now in Gansu province, western China. Based upon internal evidence it has been suggested that the ‘Ancient Letters’ were written in 312–313. A script similar to that used in the ‘Ancient Letters’ appear upon hundreds of rock carvings in the Gilgit region of Pakistan. The ‘Upper Indus graffiti’ have been dated to the 4th–7th centuries.
