Subject: The Language of an Old Book
Question: Dear Panelists,

A friend sent me two pages of an old book and asked me the
language. They can be accessed at the below URLs:

I'll be very pleased if you answer me. At internet I tried several
pages but I believe that you are the expert. The family says that
this book is about 2.000 years according to the C 14 test--hard to
believe--but they still could not find the language. If you are
interested, please inform me. The origin is Syria.

Yours Faithfully,
Hasan Arda
