Maybe someone here knows more of this:
1- Someone claims/said that Tolkien's "The Silmarillion" is inspired by a rather unknown and older book;
2- Strabo claimed that the Phoenicians did not invent their script themselves, but that they had received it from another people.
Especially point -2- should be interesting, but I am not sure if I remember either point right.
