Minoan Linear A silver pin at the A.Y. Nickolaus Museum, Crete & the word for “silver”: The Minoan Linear A silver pin at the A.Y. Nickolaus Museum, Crete apparently contains one of two possible words for “silver”, these being either awapi or tazasa. There is a third word on this tablet, adara, which might have meant “silver”, except for one mitigating factor: I have already deciphered the word adaro as meaning “barley” in our Minoan Linear A Glossary, and adara is too close for comfort. So I have had to eliminate it as a candidate for “silver”. This tablet also features 5 multi-syllabic words which are almost certainly eponyms (personal names). These are: Dadumine Qami*47nara Tesudesekei Tititeqati Tateikezare This brings the total number of of Minoan Linear A words I have deciphered, more or less accurately, to 134, which represents 26.8 % of all intact Minoan Linear A terms in Prof. John G. Younger’s Linear A texts in phonetic transcription. Cf. Chris Tselentis, akuro = silver in Mycenaean Linear B.
