Thank you so much, Robert! Very much appreciated. If you have any other Greek stories, send the .jpg to me at: email@example.com so that I can convert some of the words into Mycenaean Linear B. The problem is that we can only convert SOME words, as Mycenaean Greek vocabulary is very small and restricted. Richard
