Komering Komering script (Hurup Komering)

Komering script is one of the traditional scripts from the province of South Sumatra in Indonesia. It was used to write Komering, a Lampungic language spoken along the Komering River in Lampung Province and South Sumatra Province. It is related to the Lampung, Ogan, Pasemah, and Rejang scripts.

The Komering script is not used any more, and Komering is written with the Latin alphabet. In the past the Komering script could only be read by chiefs and their clerks, and it was used to send secret messages between them. It came to be considered as magical, and it was thought to bring bad luck to try to read it. Much of the material written in the Komering script was burned (either intentionally or accidentally), eaten by termites, or destroyed in other ways. As a result, very little evidence of the script remains.
