Hello,

I have tried finding how the letter names for the Imperial Aramaic alphabet, but haven't seen it anywhere. I was wondering if anyone could either direct me to someplace that may have them?

e.g.

Ālap
Aramaic, Imperial: Letter [character not shown] - Name - ?
Aramaic, Syriac: Letter - ܐ Name - ܐܠܦ
Arabic: Letter - ا Name - أَلِف
Hebrew: Letter - א Name - אָלֶף

Would the letter name be spelled ?

Bēth
Aramaic, Imperial: Letter [character not shown] - Name - ?
Aramaic, Syriac: Letter - ܒ Name - ܒܝܬ
Arabic: Letter - ب Name - بَاء
Hebrew: Letter - ב Name - בֵּית

Edit: the Imperial Aramaic characters disappear after being posted here for some reason.

    The names of the letters are not attested in Old or Imperial Aramaic. Presumably they were similar to the Hebrew or Syriac ones, but we do not know the details.
