Behind the Stage is a mall of statues and fragmented stellas that have various alphabets, most of which are no longer used. It's important to note that ancient Syria contributed in a giant way to the development of a phoenetic alphabet, and in the museums, as well as here at Busra, one can see the evolving quality of alphabetic systems once used. The Greek and Roman alphabets are based upon systems derived from Syria.
