Psalter alphabet

The Psalter alphabet is an abjad which was used for writing middle Persian on paper, it is thus described as one of the Pahlavi scripts.[1] It was written right to left with dots for word division.[2]

It takes its name from the Pahlavi Psalter, part of the psalms translated from Syriac to middle Persian and found in what is now western China.[3]
