Inscription displaying apices (from the shrine of the Augustales at Herculaneum)

An inscription from Julium, Eurasia, written in the Julian script.

The classical Julian alphabet, also known as the Eurasian alphabet, is a writing system that evolved from what are known as the proto-Julian scripts, which themselves derived from ancient hieroglyphics from Asticus, in Eurasia.

During the Middle Ages, the Julian alphabet was adapted for writing a plethora of languages, virtually replacing native runes, and other scripts.

The Julian alphabet is the most widespread through Esamir, with most nations using some form of the Julian alphabet, possibly alongside a native script. There are many derivatives of the Julian alphabet, in what culminates in the alphabets of individual languages, examples being the Arveyran, English, and Montesi alphabets.
