Restoration of the top of Minoan Linear Tablet ZA 20 (Zakros) REVISED:
Since the last post on my original restoration of the top of Minoan Linear Tablet ZA 20 (Zakros), I have reconsidered the hypothetical text, and I have come up with this more plausible restoration:
The running decipherment reads as follows:
1. a field
2. of 20 bales of einkorn wheat
3. and 20 bales of emmer wheat
4. and 65 bales of barley
5. all measured by bales
6. 4 bales of MI ?? ZA (unknown) + 1 bale with wheat
7. and 12 bales of wheat with 2 spin-offs of chaff from the wheat
8. totals for all the above = 130
This restoration is the basis of an article on it soon to be published on academia.edu. I shall keep you posted.
