Arameans

The Arameans were an ancient Semitic-speaking people in the Near East, first recorded in historical sources from the late 12th century BCE. The Aramean homeland was known as the land of Aram, encompassing the central regions of modern Syria. At the beginning of the 1st millennium BCE, a number of Aramean states were established throughout the western regions of the ancient Near East. The most notable among them was the Kingdom of Aram-Damascus, which reached its height in the second half of the 9th century BCE, during the reign of King Hazael. A distinctive Aramaic alphabet was also developed and used for writing in the Old Aramaic language.
