Georgian is a South Caucasian or Kartvelian language spoken in Georgia, and also in Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Azerbaijan and Iran. The Georgian language first appeared in writing in about 430 AD in an inscription in a church in Palestine in the Asomtavruli alphabet. Before then the main written language used in Georgia was a form of Aramaic known as Armazuli. 2 other alphabets have been used to write Georgian: Nushkhuri and Mkhedruli, which is the alphabet currently used.
The Georgian scripts are the three writing systems used to write the Georgian language: Asomtavruli, Nuskhuri and Mkhedruli. The origins of the Georgian alphabet are poorly known and no full agreement exists among scholars as to its date of creation, who designed the script and the main influences on that process. The oldest uncontested example of Georgian script Asomtavruli as seen above, is found in the historic town of Nekresi in eastern Georgia, dated I-III centuries AD.
