Samothracian alphabet by Sheighness Samothracian alphabet by Sheighness
The Samothracian alphabet is basically a furthered Latin script. It delineates separate sounds better than English: s-, sh-, st-, z-, zh- and ch- are all single and separate letters, but based on only two glyphs; similarly, each vowel sound is assigned its own letter (except for those that are r-colored, and some rare others).
There are 34 letters in total, each with a maju- and miniscule form, and the final letter 'defence,' which is a signatory greeting and closing.
There is an equivalent general language, also called Samothracian.

You'll need to click on it to see the actual image. Apparently dA doesn't care for PNG.
