There's a mass of ancient (and modern) scripts to be found here: http://www.omniglot.com/writing/ . I was looking for ages for something covering Nabataean, but everything else is there as well.

yes, I love omniglot.  It is extremely useful - it's come in handy with me for Arabic, Proto-Hebrew and others...

I think the last column should be labelled 'modern Hebrew' or something similar. It's the square Aramaic script in use today, but the anachronistic script used on Hasmonean coins (at a time when the square characters were already standard) is also Hebrew!

DirtyLincoln your IP and email address show up on online SPAM forum poster lists.  Your first post seems to actually follow the conversation but know that anyone that does post SPAM is immediatly deleted and banned.  This discussion is heavily monitored.  Soon we are adding an automated ban program and if you are a legitimate poster, you may find yourself banned by the automated program that uses an online database to ban IPs.
