The history books of architecture start from the megalithic culture, from the ‘dolmens’ that remind everyone of the eternity of the universe. The disks found in the artefacts and the signs
(sun, moon, stars) on the toned stones indicate the connections between humans and the cosmos from time immemorial. Our Asomtavruli alphabet proves the same and according to some studies, it originates from the Sumerians.

Asomtavruli alphabet begins with:

1 Ani – Moon, sky, male deity – numerological meaning 1
4 Doni – day, Sun deity, mother deity – numerological
meaning 4
9 Tani – eye, deity of light, 9th sky – numerological meaning 9
11 Kani – door, birth, eternity – numerological meaning 20
19 Ra – deity Ra, sun of the suns – numerological meaning 100
34 – an ox – 7000.

The Phoenician alphabet contained a total of 22 letters, or 22 ideograms. The first is “Aleph” – the ideogram of an ox. Next is “Beti”, which signifies the house, and the fourth sign “Dalet” – the door. The North Semitic alphabet is thought to have originated from Phoenician. The North Semitic alphabet counts 22 ideograms.
