Evidence for the origins of the Greek Alphabet
 

Phoenicians sea-going traders, and merchants adopting the Greek Alphabet, and introducing it to the Mediterranean countries, giving the impression that the Alphabet was Phoenician, for this responsible was Greek historian Herodotus, confusing «recent Cadmus (=Κάδμος)»  with the older Cadmus, who appeared the same era with Zeus, as we read in the Greek historian Hesiodus in «Theogony» (lines 937,975,978) and in Homer's  (Odyssey E. 299-333-335).

«» =X - ks

Ξ: This symbol in sound ΚΣ (=KS),  ΧΣ (=HS), ΓΣ (=GS). (double character). We must remember that the formation of the symbols to prehistoric man of the Greek mountains the only skill and knowledge was hunting and cutting wood, using a sharp Flintstone to scrub off the hair of a skin giving that sound, also scratching sticks of wood creating arrows for their hunting and pile them up, giving the image , but also pile-up firewood  or skins. The elaboration of skin for foot and body ware, and also wool for dressing was the main domestic occupation that lead the idea of merchandising their products to other communities.

From this the word:
ΞΕΝΟΣ(XENOS)(=foreigner)(Φιλό(=friendly)+Ξενος=pheloxenos=hospitable)


«Πρός γάρ Διός εισιν άπαντες ξεινοί τε πτωχοί τε»,  
 
[because
foreigners by Zeus are protected, Strangers and poor].

Ancient Greek historian (Ησίοδος (Hesiod) advises not to be very friendly and also not to be very unfriendly to strangers (traders).

Words «ΞΥΛΟΝ» (=WOOD), «ΞΥΡΟΝ» (=DRY), ΞΥΕΙΝ (=TO SCRATCH of wool from skin).
 

Code meaning:
ΞΑΙΝΩ= (processing wool),
ΞΕΝΟΣ (foreigner=) STRANGER
 

Meaningful extensions:
ΞΑΝΘΟΣ= (COLOR OF WOOL (BLOND),
ΞΥΕΙΝ (=TO SCRATCH) 
ΞΥΛΟΝ» (=WOOD)
