A Linear B Military Tablet from Mycenae dealing with boar’s tusk helmets
A Linear B Military Tablet from Mycenae dealing with boar’s tusk helmets:
This tablet is one of those rarities of rarities, a Linear B tablet from Mycenae, where so few tablets h ave been unearthed, in spite of the fact that it was the major military centre of the Mycenaean Empire.
Unfortunately, so much of the text on this tablet is illegible that it is very difficult to make much sense of it. Most of the vocabulary cannot even be found in the excellent Linear B Lexicon by Chris Tselentis. But I have done my best!
