Major Rock Edict, written in Brahmi script

The Pali language was an oral language and did not have a script of its own. Today Pali can be written using any script and is most frequently written in Roman letters and Singhalese script. In ancient times, after the parinibbana of Buddha, Brahmi was used.

Some of the first Buddhist writings of any kind are the Edicts of Ashoka and some were written in the Brahmi script.
