Avestan
The language and alphabet of the Avesta, the Zoroastrian scriptures of ancient Iran. The Zoroastrian hymns were orally transmitted for many generations; however, due to language change, fluency in Avestan began to decline resulting in a need to write the hymns down. The Avestan alphabet was devised for this purpose.
