Musraiu is a way to write Akkadian with the Coptic alphabet devised by Grunky Scripples, who thought it would be cool to experiment with ancient languages using different scripts.
Akkadian was a semitic language spoken in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq and Syria) between about 2,800 BC and 500 AD. The Coptic alphabet is a version of the Greek alphabet used to write Coptic, a descendent of Ancient Egyptian that is still used as a liturgical language in the Coptic Church.

If a man has purchased or accepted for safekeeping either silver or gold or a male slave or a female slave or an ox or a sheep or a donkey or anything at all from a member of the awīlum class or an awīlum’s slave without witnesses and contracts, said man is a thief; he will be executed.
