    in the whole bible the name of the writing system is not mentioned. the ancient hebrew letters are known as Phoenician alphabet, but not in hebrew sources. in the Talmud Bavli this letter system is called ליבונאה (livona'a). in the Talmud Yerushalmi it is called דעץ (da'ats) or רעץ (ra'ats). however, till now, no one can explain the origin and meaning of these words

    Paleo-Hebrew is the script that was used by the Hebrews/Israelites until the 5th century BCE.

    The oldest versions of the bible are the Dead Sea Scrolls, that are written with what now known as Hebrew Script (also called Aramaic/Assyrian Script)
