The Past

2,000 - 200 years ago

This Semitic language was used widely throughout the Near East, beginning in the early first millennium BC when it appears in Syria and northern Mesopotamia. Its usage spread under the Assyrian and Persian empires, when it became a kind of lingua franca in the ancient Near East. Although we tend to associate Aramaic with Syria, Palestine and Iraq, it is equally true that Aramaic was widely used in the Gulf region and indeed, apart from the single example of South Arabian used on a pottery fragment from Muweilah, Aramaic is the language most widely attested in the Emirates during the late pre-Islamic era. We find it used in the legends of much of the coinage found at al-Dur and Mileiha, and we find it in stone and bronze inscriptions from these sites as well. Indeed, after the Christianization of the region of Bet Mazunaye, Aramaic would have become the principal liturgical language of the Emirates before the ascendancy of Arabic.
