Swiggers (111) assumes that the Iberic scripts are the result of a fusion of the Punic and Greek alphabetic traditions. The fact that the Iberian scripts are both alphabetic and syllabic is probably due to the nature of Iberian phonology. There are, as a matter of fact, "pro-Greek and pro-Semitic camps" (Daniels/Bright 110).
