For civilizations near river valleys of the Near East, Clay was the most suitable material to write upon. Clay can easily be worked into a flat shape. While moist, it can be scribed with a pointed stick or reed, and if left in the sun to dry, it could be easily moved and have considerable durability. This Ugaritic alphabet was developed through the stick in clay method.

There seems to be different varritions on this alphabet, so here are some links showing the different forms of this alphabet

There may be other varrations but these were the few I could find to give an example
