The Georgian scripts are the three writing systems used to write the Georgian language: Asomtavruli, Nuskhuri and Mkhedruli. The origins of the Georgian alphabet are poorly known and no full agreement exists among scholars as to its date of creation, who designed the script and the main influences on that process. The oldest uncontested example of Georgian script Asomtavruli as seen above, is found in the historic town of Nekresi in eastern Georgia, dated I-III centuries AD.
