    About Phoenician Moabite Font

    The Phoenician alphabet is the mother of virtually all modern
    alphabets, the direct ancestor of our own Roman letters, as well as the
    Runic alphabet of the Norse. The first true alphabet, it was
    originally developed circa 1,050 B.C.E. in Phoenicia (modern
    Lebanon/Israel/Syria) it developed a standardized form that endured
    for centuries.

    This font is taken from The Moabite Stone, a stela of black basalt,
    carved around 840 to 820 B.C.E. (ANET 320-321). The relatively lengthy
    inscription was written by King Mesha of Moab. The inscription, and a
    picture of the stela can be found most readily in the paperback
    The Ancient Near East -- An Anthology of Texts and Pictures, edited by
    James B. Pritchard.
