Bronze symbol of Tanit, the Phoenician Goddess found in 2014 at the Freres College dIg in Sidon, Lebanon. The artifacts are from various periods, the oldest is a public building from the 3rd millenium BCE.
Ugaritic cuneiform was named after Ugarit, the city state where it was used in what is now Syria. It was probably created sometime during the 14th century BC. Ugaritic cuneiform outwardly resembles other cuneiform scripts and has a sound system based on consonant alphabets such as Phoenician/Canaanite. Ugarit flourished from the 14th century BC until 1180/70 BC, when it was destroyed.
