For a serious enquiry I miss some details:
– is it truely ancient?
– has a date been ascribed?
– Found where, when and by who?
– What is the context (of excavation, similar objects …)?
– Where are the objects now?
– better photographs –?
From the very few details recognisable in those two images I would
rather go for the Kanaanaean branch of Phoenician rather than the
Aramaic or the Punic.
Could possibly be some Kanaanaean-Makkabaean or Samaritan.
