The Akedah Pendant and Reformed Egyptian
The Akedah pendant is rather interesting. On one side (not shown) is the pictorial story of Abraham sacrificing Isaac (includes the Angel of the Lord, the ram and the altar, etc.).The side pictured however, is "extremely enigmatic: The letters can be clearly read (in Byzantine Aramaic script, but they form only meaningless sequences that have not as yet been deciphered. It is possible that the writing on th pendant uses Aramaic characters to express a different language altogether; or it may be that the pendant is inscribed in a kind of code" ("Magnificent Obsession," Hershel Shanks, Biblical Archaeological Review, v22 n3, May/June 1996, pg 31).
From this we see the idea of a "Reformed" language. The Book of Mormon was scoffed at for its being written in Reformed Egyptian, yet there are many current evidences of Near East languages being used to write in other languages, of which this is one example.
