Anatolian Hieroglyphs

Text direction


Anatolian Hieroglyphs, also known as Luwian or Hittite Hieroglyphs, represent a script indigenous to ancient Anatolia, prominently used by the Hittite and Luwian civilizations, around 1400-700 BCE. Predominantly occurring in Turkey and Syria, these glyphs are engraved on stone monuments and illustrate the Luwian language. The Unicode Consortium has allocated a block for Anatolian Hieroglyphs in the Unicode Standard, allowing modern digital devices to display them. The originator of the script is unknown, and it remains a vital subject of research for deciphering ancient Anatolian civilization narratives.
