    The Proto-Elamite period is the time from ca. BC to BC. In archaeological terms this corresponds to the late Banesh period, and it is recognized as the oldest civilization in Iran.. The Proto-Elamite script is an Early Bronze Age writing system briefly in use before the introduction of Elamite cuneiform. It is considered to be the site of Proto-Elamite cultural formation. Written records start from around BC in the Old Elamite period (Middle Bronze Age). In the Achaemenid Empire the Elamite language was among those in official use. The Elamite language has no obvious connections with any other, and seems to be a language isolate like Sumerian.

      The age of the inscriptions approaches five millennia. The one inscription that Crawford published in Research & Exploration is now known as the Ahora Covenant Inscription. It consists of identifiable proto-Sumerian pictographic word-signs which record essential elements of the divine Noachian Covenant, Genesis, Chapters 8 and 9.

Sumerian in Proto-Elamite inscriptions by John Newberry Download PDF EPUB FB2

Proto-Elamite was used for a brief period around BC (Jemdet Nasr period in Mesopotamia), whereas Linear Elamite is attested for a similarly brief period in the last quarter of the 3rd millennium BC. Proponents of an Elamo-Dravidian relationship have looked for similarities between the Proto-Elamite script and the Indus script.

Inscription corpus. The Proto-Elamite. The Sumerians, the pragmatic and gifted people who preceded the Semites in the land first known as Sumer and later as Babylonia, created what was probably the first high civilization in the history of man, spanning the fifth to the second millenniums B.C.

This book is an unparalleled compendium of what is known about them/5. In this most unique book, the author explains the meaning, the message and structure of hundreds upon hundreds of Mesopotamian tablets, slabs, seals, obelisks, and cuneiform inscriptions.

It was said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”5/5(5). Hundreds of archaic clay tablets from Susa (they constitute the greater part of all known proto-Elamite texts) were published by the French scholar Vincent Scheil between and Scheil was also the first scholar to note one parallel between the Sumerian and the proto-Elamite scripts: the method of producing numerical notations.

The Pokotia inscriptions were written in linear Sumerian. This makes the text very significant because it supports the discovery of Sumerian symbols on the Fuente Magna bowl.

Although the Elamites and Sumerians abandoned the Proto-Elamite writing and the Uruk script respectively, in favor f cuneiform writing, the Dravidians, Minoans (EteoCretans) and Manding continued to use the Proto-Saharan script (see figure 2) (Winters c).The pottery signs were symbols from the Proto-Saharan syllabic writing.

Winters believed that researchers had been unable to read the writing because they refused to compare Proto-Elamite and Proto-Sumerian writing with other writing systems used in BC. He compared the writing to the Libyco-Berber writing used in the Sahara.

Elam was part of the early urbanization during the Chalcolithic period (Copper Age). The emergence of written records from around BC also parallels Sumerian history, where slightly earlier records have been found. In the Old Elamite period (Middle Bronze Age), Elam consisted of kingdoms on the Iranian plateau, centered in Anshan, and from the mid-2nd.

The cuneiform collection, consisting of documents from the fourth millennium BC to the first century AD, is among the most comprehensive in the Middle East, containing clay tablets, bricks, and stones bearing ancient texts written in proto-Elamite, Elamite, Sumerian, Akkadian, Urartian, and Old Persian.
