The Kharoṣṭhī script is an ancient Indic script used by the Gandhara culture of ancient Northwest South Asia in the Gāndhārī language. An alphasyllabary, it was in use from the middle of the 3rd century BCE until it died out in around the 3rd century. It was also in use in Bactria, Gandhara (the period of the Kushan Empire), Sogdiana and along the Silk Road, where there is some evidence it may have survived until the 7th century in the remote way stations of Khotan and Niya.
This ancient Babylonian tablet is part of the Babylonian Chronicles, which, among other events, records the capture of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in 597 BC. The event is also recorded in the Bible in 2 Kings 25. The tablet was written in the 6th century BC, and is made of baked clay. It is a little over three inches in height and the writing is in the Akkadian language using cuneiform script. It is now located in the British Museum. Mystery of History Volume 1, Lesson 57 #MOHI57
