Phaistos Disc

The Phaistos Disc is a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos, located in the South of the biggest Greek Island, i.e. Crete, believed to date since the 17th century B.C. It is, even to this day, one of the most famous archaeological mysteries, since no one knows the reason for its creation. It was discovered on June 3rd, 1908 by the Italian archaeologists Luigi Pernie, being kept in the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion. 


The symbols are divided into groups, using small lines, leading them towards the epicentre of the Phaistos Disc. It has captured the imagination of numerous professional and amateur archaeologists; many attempts have been made in order to decipher the code behind the disc's signs, however there are disputed exegeses to this riddle, hence we still do not know what is written on the Phaistos Disc.

    The famous Phaistos Disc is a printed, per paragraph, synoptic report of a manager actions from the Phaistos commercial center. The spirals, for technical reasons, are starting with guide the edge of the disc, from the periphery to the center, and the inscription, again for technical reasons, begins reversely.
    The Phaistos Disk, the Column from Abydos, the Rosetta’s Stone, the plate from Egkomi, the plate from the Athena's sanctuary of the Idalion and the plate of Kortona are some written reports or publications current accounting's and regulatory acts for the king's or administration's or municipality's informing.

    When talking about the Human Language we mean the Universal Language, which we will discover and, studying, we will approach through dialects of nations and peoples.
