The term
 graffiti
referred to the inscription, figure drawings, etc., found on the walls of ancientsepulchers or ruins, as in theCatacomes of Rome or at Pompeii. Usage of the word has evolved toinclude any graphics applied to surfaces in a manner that constitutes vandalism.The earliest forms of graffiti date back to 30,000BCE in the form of prehistoriccave paintings and  pictographs using tools such asanimal bones and pigments. These illustrations were often placed in ceremonial and sacred locations inside of the caves. The images drawn on the walls showed scenesof animal wildlife and hunting expeditions in most circumstances. This form of graffiti is subject todisagreement considering it is likely that members of prehistoric society endorsed the creation of these illustrations.The only known source of theSafaitic language, aform of proto-Arabic, is from graffiti: inscriptionsscratched on to the surface of rocks and bouldersin the predominantly basalt desert of southernSyria, easternJordan and northernSaudi Arabia. Safaitic dates from the 1st century BCE to the 4thcentury CE.
