The Caucasian Albanian alphabet was the alphabet for the people of Caucasian Albania. It was discovered by a professor named Ilia Abuladze in 1937. The Alphabet was created by Mesrop Mashots a Armenian monk, warrior and translator. Armenian historian Koriun, in The Life of Mashtots, wrote:
The Caucasian Albanian alphabet, sometimes called Old Udi script, was an alphabet used by the Caucasian Albanians, one of the ancient and indigenous Northeast Caucasian peoples whose territory comprised parts of present-day Azerbaijan and Daghestan.
Caucasian Albanian is a simple alphabetic script written from left to right horizontally. The digraphs "# ow and ’# üw are sometimes written as ligatures, though this does not affect the encoding.

The Caucasian Albanian alphabet, which is also known as the Old Udi script, was used by the Caucasian Albanians, speakers of a northeast Caucasian language who lived in parts of what is now Azerbaijan and Daghestan.
The Albanian alphabet was rediscovered by a Georgian scholar, Professor Ilia Abuladze, in 1937. The alphabet was found in Matenadaran MS No. 7117, an Armenian-language manual of the 15th century. This manual presents different alphabets for comparison: Armenian,
