- Elbasan script
Elbasan script is an eighteenth-century script used for the
Albanian language. It was named after the city of Elbasanwhere it was invented. However, it was not widely used and was overwhelmed by Greek, Arabic and Latin scripts, the latter becoming the official one in 1908.
Another original script used for Albanian, was
Beitha Kukjuscript of the 19th century. This script did not have much influence either.
