Etymology[edit | edit source]
Byblos might allude to the boss of the same name and appearance from Final Fantasy V, that was fought in a library and thus named after an undeciphered writing system. Byblos syllabary, also known as the Pseudo-hieroglyphic script, Proto-Byblian, Proto-Byblic, or Byblic, is an undeciphered writing system known from ten inscriptions found in Byblos.
