The oldest alphabet in the world is believed to be the Phoenician alphabet, which dates back to around 1200 BC. The Phoenicians were a civilization that existed in the eastern Mediterranean region, in what is now Lebanon and parts of Syria and Israel. Their alphabet consisted of 22 letters, all of which were consonants. This writing system was widely adopted by other cultures and served as a basis for the Greek and Latin alphabets. It's important to note that while this is considered the first "alphabet" (a system where symbols correspond to sounds), there were earlier forms of written communication such as cuneiform and hieroglyphics, but these are not considered true alphabets as they used symbols to represent words or syllables rather than individual sounds.
