Hebrew, Phoenician, Canaanite[edit]

Re edit discussion with Chefallen, the script is unquestionably "Canaanite", as both Hebrew and Phoenician are types of Canaanite (see here Canaanite languages). Scholars who suggest that the inscription is Canaanite are taking a neutral position on the debate, which centers around whether it is specifically Hebrew or Phoenician. Reading all the sources available, it looks to me as if a conclusion cannot be reached as both options are and will remain disputable. Oncenawhile (talk) 16:34, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
