As of the s, folklorists had not undertaken extensive collecting of riddles in India, but riddling was known to be thriving as a form of folk-literature, sometimes in verse. While riddles are not numerous in the Bible, they are present, most famously in Samson's riddle in Judges xiv. In the medieval period, however, verse riddles, alongside other puzzles and conundra, became a significant literary form in the Arabic-speaking world,  and accordingly in Islamic Persian culture  and in Hebrew — particularly in Al-Andalus.
Meanwhile, in Hebrew, Dunash ben Labrat —credited with transposing Arabic metres into Hebrew, composed a number of riddles, mostly apparently inspired by folk-riddles. In both Arabic and Persian, riddles seem to have become increasingly scholarly in style over time, increasingly emphasising riddles and puzzles in which the interpreter has resolve clues to letters and numbers to put together the word which is the riddle's solution.
Riddles have been collected by modern scholars throughout the Arabic-speaking world. Riddles are known to have been popular in Greece in Hellenistic times, and possibly before; they were prominent among the entertainments and challenges presented at symposia.

Likewise, early modern English-speakers published printed riddle collections, such as the Riddles of Heraclitus and Democrituswhich includes for example the following riddle:.
