A Sabaean script font


The script known as Himyaritic or Epigraphic South Arabian is related to the Sinaitic and early Semitic alphabets, but its shapes are remarkably unique for such a derivation. It is also an ancestor of the modern Ethiopic script. Inscriptions in this script are found in southern Arabia (the ancient Sabaean and Minaean kingdoms) dating from as far back as 500 BCE. The script was apparently used until about 600 CE.
