ISO 639 Registration Authorities' Joint Advisory Committee has made the following decision:
The item "arc", which has been encoded in ISO 639-2 and ISO 639-3 with the name "Aramaic" and "araméen" (English and French), is changed to "Official Aramaic; Imperial Aramaic" and "araméen d'empire", with an addition of a note indicating the time span 700-300 BCE. 

Additional Aramaic variants are encoded in ISO 639-3.
Best regards,
