  • How do we know about the ancient writing systems? What order were they in, what names did they have? Abecedaria are documents of any form (most commonly pottery fragments) which detail the alphabet in some way. To linguists they serve as windows into a distant past; to us they serve as reminders that even the merest text may be vital.
