THE GREEK ALPHABET

MARIAGE BETWEEN THE PHOENICIAN ALPHABET AND THE GREEK LANGUAGE

Author : Thierry H. de Mortain.

The pictographic writing has a long tradition which is dated to the 3 rd millennium before Christ  and which developed in parallel in Egypt (hieroglyphs) and in Mesopotamia (cuneiform), and then gave birth and influenced all writing systems of the middle east like the protosinaitic, the pers, the Arab, the Hebraic and finally the Phoenician whose letters will propagate to the Latin alphabet, through the Greek alphabet.
