Is this a form of Ugaritic that might have been brought to the West, and hence been the inspiration for the Greek alphabet? or hiterto unknown evidence for Mesopotamian seafarers in the Western Sea -- perhaps Luvians, Assyrians -- or, even earlier, Mariotes -- seeking a westward route to Dilmun that avoided the hostile territories farther east? --
