As you may know, Cuneiform is the name given to the written language, among others, the Babylonians. The particular script underwent changes over time but is I believe generally know today as Cuneiform.
Question is, how might one describe or even give name to this particular style of writing without using the word, presumably a modern word, Cuneiform.
Babylonians themselves didn't call it that, and its not really clear if they called it anything, or had a particular name for it.
But in the context of a story set in those times, how might you describe it, or name it? Not necessarily looking for something precise and historically accurate, only something plausible and creative.
Say for example a priestess' robe, trimmed with characters of Cuneiform?
