(Redirected from Punic language)

Punic was a Roman contraction of Phoenician, and was used by the Romans after the Punic wars as an adjective meaning "treacherous".

In archaeological and linguistic usage, it refers to the later culture and dialect of Carthage and its empire, as distinct from their Phoenician originals. See Phoenician languages.
