Minoan Linear A ase = bushels? & qaqaru = crop yield? Does the Minoan Linear A word ase = bushels & qaqaru = crop yield? While I have tentatively deciphered them this way, I am remain in some doubt about the decipherments. The primary reason for my doubts rests on the fact that only 26 ase or “bushels” are mentioned in the context a total crop yield of 5 qaqaru. Both figures are on the low side. A crop yield that low would not go very far. But for the time being, I will go with these translations. These 2 decipherments, which appear to be less rather than more accurate, bring our putative total to seventy-nine (79). The reliability of these 2 decipherments is <50%.
