Phoenician fun

On Wikipedia, I found this example of a Phoenician religious inscription (with a translation):
Conveniently, "...while the inscription can certainly be read, certain passages are philologically uncertain on account of perceived complications of syntax and the vocabulary employed in the inscription, and as such they have become the source of debate among both Semitists and Classicists." —Jason

Editor's note: Phoenician will likely be used as a base language for some ancient texts which play a vital role in the comic's plot. See a portion of the translated text HERE.
