Punic was a semitic language descended from Phoenican and spoken until about the 4th Century AD in Carthage in what is now Tunisia, and other parts of North Africa and around the Mediterreaen. The Punic alphabet developed from the Phoenician alphabet and was used for monumental inscriptions, while the cursive Neo-Punic alphabet was used elsewhere.
