A sequence of letters belonging to an ancient alphabet has been discovered in a most unusual way — by someone scrolling through social media. The inscription, on a slate slab unearthed in Spain, is closely linked to the Phoenician alphabet, which was hugely influential on later writing systems including Latin, Spanish and English. 

Dating to the 5th century B.C., the site is one of several connected with Tartessos. Ancient Greek texts mention the existence of a city called Tartessos, This civilization mysteriously disappeared towards the end of the 5th century B.C.
