When the scripts used in the former three Wede:i kingdoms (Yenine, Saiśi and Na:nyanok) had diverged, Nanuŋitera directed scholars to produce a unified script for use by all. The result was the Old Syllabary, actually a mixed system, consisting of 655 syllabic signs and 440 logographs representing particular words.
Nanuŋitera is also known for promulgating the first legal code (-610), the Canons of Respect.
Etymology: Wede:i 'divine radiance'.
