Pre-Roman languages and writings

Iberian writing was used on the Iberian Peninsula’s Mediterranean coast, from the Languedoc to the eastern Andalusia. The area stretches to the Aragonese territory of today.

The territories where the languages were spoken did not always match the writings that were used. That's why the equivalences between languages and writings are not unidirectional:


Therefore, we have three scripts for only one language, and three languages written with the same script.

The larger one, the Iberian script, has two varieties: the Northeastern (called Classic Iberian or Levantine) and the Meridional (which has Tartessian influences).
