A palindrome is a word, sentence, or number that reads the same from left to right as from right to left. Punctuation does not matter, but letters and digits do. All alphabetic languages have palindromes. The first palindrome was the Latin Sator Square, which reads:
S A T O R
A R E P O
T E N E T
O P E R A
R O T A S
You can read it horizontally, backwards, even vertically!
