Ancient North Arabian is the collective name for a group of scripts, and possibly a language or group of languages, that were used in north and central Arabia and southern Syria from about the 8th Century BC until the 4th century AD. It is thought that the Ancient North Arabic scripts developed from, or shared a common ancestor with the Ancient South Arabian script.
