ABOUT PHAISTOS DISK The Phaistos Disc is an enigma, an circular clay disc covered with inscribed symbols on both sides that are unlike any signs in any writing system. It was discovered in the ancient city of Phaistos in Southern Crete in 1908. It is thought to date to around 1700 BC (from associated archaelogical context), roughly contemporary with . Its purpose and meaning, and even its original geographical place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology. The disc features 241 tokens, comprising 45 unique signs, which were apparently made by pressing hieroglyphic "seals" into a disc of soft clay. This unique object is now on display at the archaeological museum of Heraklion.

Decoding the Phaistos Disc: Divine Messenger

The clues are out there if you know where to look. The pedestrian on the Phaistos Disc solves for Linear A syllable "KE". The bull's rump on the Phaistos Disc is actually an upside symmetrical flower vase that solves for Linear A syllable "NE". With these simple discoveries, the mapping of the remaining characters starts to fall into place. The writing system on the Phaistos Disc is revealed as Linear A from the Minoans, yet the language on the Phaistos Disc is revealed as an earlier version of the Greek language from Linear B. This shocking paradox will be untangled in this book. Evidence from Linear A, Linear B, Cretan Hieroglyphics, Cypriot, and Cypro-Minoan will all be taken into consideration. Central to the book is the discovery of a new flavor of Linear A characters called "Phaistos Hybrids" that has been hiding in plain sight. These "Phaistos Hybrids" are more detailed drawings of Linear A characters compared to other sites such as Hagia Triada. These "Phaistos Hybrids" allow us to bridge the gap between the picturesque Phaistos Disc characters and the abstract stick figures in Linear A. Still more clues are uncovered on the Arkalochori Axe to allow for decoding Phaistos Disc characters such as the papyrus. Revisiting the books of Sir Arthur Evans will decode characters s...

The Phaistos Disc captured the imagination of amateur and professional archeologists, and many attempts have been made to decipher the code behind the disc's signs. While it is not clear that it is a script, most attempted decipherments assume that it is; most additionally assume a syllabary, others an alphabet or logography.

The Phaistos Disc and Antikythera Mechanism: The History of the Most Mysterious Artifacts from Ancient Greece

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contents*Includes picturesNearly 2,000 years before Homer wrote his epic poems, the Minoan civilization was centered on the island of Crete, a location that required the Minoans to be a regional sea power. And indeed they were, stretching across the Aegean Sea from about 2700-1500 BCE, with trade routes extending all the way to Egypt. The Minoans may have been the first link in the “European chain”, leading to the Ancient Greeks and beyond, but questions persist over the origins of the civilization, the end of the civilization, and substantial parts of their history, including their religion and buildings. All of this is largely because their written language, known today as “Linear A,” remains undeciphered, and among the more enigmatic finds of this truly enigmatic culture was a small disk-shaped object excavated among the ruins of the Minoan city of Phaistos in 1908. The disc, which has since become known simply as the “Phaistos Disc,” contains a number of pictographic symbols that were unrecognized by the scholars who first laid eyes on the object and remain unknown in the more than 100 years since. The contents of the Phaistos Disc, like the Minoan language of L...

The Phaistos Disk: An Account of its Unresolved Mystery

Since it was discovered in 1908, the Phaistos Disk - one of the most important artifacts from Crete's minoan culture - has challenged scholars of diverse diciplines and captivated interests of amateurs. Its allure is primarily due to the fact that no one has been able to really solve its mystery. None of the numerous decipherments has found general acceptance or scientific approval. This book does not offer yet another attempt at deciphering the Disk. Rather, it is a short presentation of the various research efforts on the dating and origin, writing and language, as well as content and purpose of the Disk. This lively account of the most important aspects of a not-so-strictly-scholarly debate, which has gone on for decades, also includes a view of the putative solutions.

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsThe pre-modern world, especially the ancient world, is full of many mysteries, riddles, and enigmas that have perplexed scholars and lay people alike for centuries. One does not have to search long to find some of these mysteries. Ancient Egypt is often thought of as one of the most arcane of all civilizations with many aspects of its culture that are only now coming to light. For instance, the hieroglyphic script was not deciphered until the 19th century and to date scholars are still unsure about the details concerning how the pyramids were built or how mummies were made since there are no extant ancient “guidebooks” of either. In the New World, the sudden decline of the Mayan culture has captured the imagination of many for generations as the Maya left no records detailing their downfall. Likewise, the oldest European culture to reach the status of “civilization” – the Minoans – remains a mystery to the modern world in many ways. Nearly 2,500 years after the Golden Age of Athens, people across the world today continue to be fascinated by the Ancient Greeks, but the Greeks looked up to the Minoans. In Homer’s Odyssey, Odysseus makes note of “a great to...

This one-of-a-kind disk was found in the early 1920s in Phaistos Crete. Although all other Cretan languages have been translated, this one has not. The others are Greek-Mycenaean and Minos languages but this one is not. Is it another scholarly hoax, or is it the first written language of the Pre-Ugaritic and Pre-Aramaic Syrian alphabet?This 22 page monograph lists all the chatacters, and scholarly guesses about many of them and came to a conclusion in this monograph's first edition that is contradicted in this one.

Sterling Silver Greek Keychain - Phaistos Disk, Made in Greece

When discovered, the disc was found in the underground basement "temple depository" - known now as "room 8 in building 101" of a group of buildings to the northeast of the main palace. These basement cells, only accessible from above, were neatly covered with a layer of fine plaster, and amongst black earth and ashes, mixed with burnt bovine bones. This grouping of 4 rooms also served as a formal entry into the palace complex. Italian archaeologist Luigi Pernier recovered this remarkably intact "dish", about 15 cm in diameter and uniformly slightly more than one centimeter in thickness, on July 3, 1908 during his excavation of the first Minoan palace. The original disc is about 15 cm in diameter (slightly more than one centimeter in thickness) and covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning, and even its original geographical place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology. This unique object is now on display at the archaeological museum of Heraklion in Crete, Greece. There are 241 tokens on the disc, comprising 45 symbols (for example, "Man, Woman, Child, Bow, Arrow, Shield, Ship, Dove, etc.), mostly representing easily identifiable every-day things.
