Linear A tablet 10 (Haghia Triada), a crazy-quilt hodgepodge

Linear A tablet 10 (Haghia Triada), a crazy-quilt hodgepodge:


Linear A tablet 10 (Haghia Triada) is a crazy-quilt hodgepodge of 2 apparent Mycenaean-derived words (MEZA & TARINA), Semitic (KUNISU), with all of the rest of the words being Old Minoan (OM). Moreover, there are two numeric syllabograms U*305 & *312, which are completely unknown. There is also some confusion with the numerals on this tablet. I disagree with Prof. John G. Younger’s interpretation of some of them. So as we can see, in spite of the 2 apparent Mycenaean-derived words, it is next to impossible to decipher this tablet, try as we might.

  1. Good afternoon Richard,

    I have a question that is not related to this tablet but to Lin A in general. Do you know if other Lin A inscriptions have been found in the recent years? I have done some research and it does not seems like it.
