A) the Aramaic script with it, from which was derived both northern and
------> "which" modifies " the Aramaic script", "which" should come after the script instead of "it" ---> out

B) the Aramaic script with it, and from which deriving both the northern and the
---->same to A

C) with it the Aramaic script, from which derive both the northern and the
---> looks okie

D) with it the Aramaic script, from which derives both northern and
singular "derives " is wrong ---> out

E) with it the Aramaic script, and deriving from it both the northern and
------> second "it" is somewhat ambiguous.

C stands the best.
