Title: On a New Archaeological Corpus of Cypro-Minoan Inscriptions
Author(s): VALÉRIO, Miguel
Journal: Bibliotheca Orientalis
Volume: 71 Issue: 5-6 Date: 2014
The field of Cypriot epigraphy has recently been presented with two related volumes titled Cypro-Minoan Inscriptions, by Silvia Ferrara (2012, 2013). One compiles most known documented objects inscribed in this undeciphered script and the other examines them primarily from the point of view of archaeology. The present article offers a review of the two books, with special attention given to their contributions to the palaeography of Cypro-Minoan, and how they compare to the first collection of Cypro-Minoan texts, Jean-Pierre Olivier’s pivotal Édition holistique des textes chypro-minoens (Pisa/Rome, 2007).
