Alphabetic Writing Systems of Anatolia in the first Millennium BC

Giulia Torri

In the first millennium B.C. the Anatolian territory was characterized by the presence of Indo-European populations, Lycians, Phrygians, Lydians and Carians, who developed indigenous writing systems. These are systems very close to the Greek alphabet from which they descend or with which they share a common origin. In this seminar I will trace the historical moment in which these writing systems were developed and present the main sources for their reconstruction.
