Most linguists agree that after the 6th century BCE when the Neo-Babylonian Empire destroyed Jerusalem and exiled its population to Babylon and the Persian Empire allowed them to return, the Biblical Hebrew dialect prevalent in the Bible came to be replaced in daily use by new dialects of Hebrew and a local version of Aramaic.
After the 2nd century CE when the Roman Empire exiled the Jewish population of Jerusalem and parts of Roman occupied Judea, Hebrew gradually ceased to be a spoken language roughly around 300 CE, but remained a major literary language during the centuries since.
By the end of the 3rd millennium BCE the ancestral Aramaic, Ugaritic and Canaanite languages were spoken in the Levant alongside the influential dialects of Ebla and Akkad.

 Ancient Scripts: Elamite

Only starting from the 13th century BCE onward did the Elamite language reappear in the archaeological record, but at this point in time the Elamite had borrowed and adapted the cuneiform script to write their language.

The pioneering portraits of the fifth century are just one example of the way in which Classical art as a whole was definitively centered on the human form.
Displayed here is Polycleitus' famous Doryphoros, or Spear-Bearer, an exquisite example from 450 BCE of the contra posto pose which was to become an archetype for representations of the male nude in later artistic periods-- as illustrated by the Roman copies exhibited alongside the original.
