  Arameans - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Arameans or Aramaeans were a Semitic, nomadic people mentioned six times in the Hebrew Bible, who dwelt in Aram-Naharaim or "Aram of the two rivers," also known as Mesopotamia, and the adjoining region including parts of modern Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Iran.
"Aramean" was a term used by the Israelites to distinguish their more distant cousins to the east known as Aram from the closely related Arpachshadite so-called "Children of Eber" tribes.
However, Arameans have never had a unified nation-state; rather they are defined by their use of the Aramaic language, that was first written with the Phoenician alphabet.
