Move to "Faiyum alphabet"[edit]

Shouldn't this article be titled "Faiyum alphabet" corresponding to the article on Faiyum, Egypt? -- œ 03:08, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Greek or Phoenician[edit]

Does anybody have information on why this abecedary has been linked to Greek in the first place? As far as I understand, its letter inventory is purely that of the original Phoenician (from aleph to taw), without the crucial and specifically Greek addition of upsilon. Since it's purely an abecedary (no actual words recorded), how can the linguistic background of its writers be known? Fut.Perf. 00:46, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

I had the same question. It's not mentioned is my sources for early Greek writing. Is it maybe just a good graphic match to early Greek? — kwami (talk) 05:07, 25 May 2012 (UTC)
