Nevertheless Aramaic is indeed one of the oldest written and spoken languages of the world.

Its ancient form was used by some city-states in the Middle East one of them being Damascus first attested from the 10nth century BCE.It was written in a variation of the Phoenician script.

Descendent languages of Aramaic are still spoken by some people in the M.E. and immigrants abroad who left their countries due to the ongoing war there.
