  • Next message: James Kass: "Re: Phoenician character properties"

    I just saw the following posting on the Ancient Near Eastern email list.

    Interesting in light of the Phoenician and Archaic Greek discussions here, no?

    Notice the striking non-use of the term "Phoenician" in the conference
    title, using "West Semitic" instead.

    Maybe we should wait to see what comes out of this conference. I wish I
    could attend.


    A conference on the development and use of alphabetic Greek and other
    writing systems in the Early Iron Age Mediterranean.

    1st to 3rd July 2004, at St. Hilda's College Oxford.
