However, Dougall records the discovery of a punic inscription identifying a king Battus on a sepulcher in Malta. [3] In fact, Dougall mentions how in an underground sepulcher was found in " khasam ta byn Hysae," that is Bengħisa, in the south side of the island of Malta.

      The idea that Punic was the origin of Maltese was first raised in Modern linguistics has proved that Maltese is in fact derived from Arabic, probably Siculo-Arabic specifically, with a large number of loanwords from Italian. However, Punic was indeed spoken on the island of Malta at some point in its history, Early form: Phoenician. The Punic-Libyan Inscription is an important ancient bilingual inscription dated to the 2nd century BC, which played a significant role in deciphering the Berber language. The inscription once formed part of the Libyco-Punic Mausoleum at Dougga in Tunisia, before it was removed in the mid nineteenth century and taken to London, where it is now in the British Museum's Material: Limestone.

First report, Malta, Supported by numerous colour photographs by Daniel Cilia, this well-presented book surveys the archaeological heritage of Malta, focusing on the classical period rather than the island's more celebrated prehistoric past.

Photographs, plans and reconstruction drawings present archaeological sites, tombs, coins, ceramics, artworks, extraordinary objects and other items. The remains of six Punic-Roman towers have been identified in Malta. They are believed to have been built while the island was part of the Punic or Roman Empires.

Their architecture suggests a late Punic origin, [1] and they remained in use throughout the Roman period, until at least the 3rd century AD. Malta had formed part of the Carthaginian empire and changed hands a number of times during the Punic Wars ( BC) before becoming Roman "civitas foederata" in BC.

During Roman times the Maltese continued to speak Punic. However, it has to be said that Punic inscriptions in Malta stop in the 1 st century AD. Malta - Phoenician, Punic and Roman by A. Bonanno,available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide.

The Phoenicians settled in Malta around the eighth century BC. This book contains a nice selection of papers. I appreciate that not all of the authors are in agreement- just setting the definition and scope of what "Punic" is, and even if that's what we should call it, is astoundingly complicated, and the different viewpoints that make up the first half of the book are all well expressed and supported by data ranging from work by contemporary 5/5(1).
