Ancient Aramaic.

Ancient Aramaic was the language of the Arameans who first appeared in about the 11nth century B.C.E. in the region of Aram in modern-day Syria.


The first document of Ancient Aramaic is an inscription dating from the 10nth century B.C.E. This form of Aramaic was originally used in the Aramean city states.

The end of its era corresponds with the rise of the Sassanids.It was written in the Old Aramaic script whose letter forms came from and look much like the Phoenician alphabet.
