Decipherment of Haghia Triada tablet HT 11 entirely in Mycenaean derived Greek:
If we read this tablet as if it were inscribed in Mycenaean derived Greek, it does actually make sense. While the tablet is partially an inventory, the rest of it is a religious ceremony for (farmed?) land leased out, blessed by 3 priests. It is much more complex than most tablets either in Linear A or in Linear B.

Interesting translation Richard. !!
Yes, it certainly is. All you have to do is substitute Linear B syllabograms for Linear A and you will see for yourself it is indeed Mycenaean.
