Abstract:

This volume is the first comprehensive archaeological catalogue of all the
extant inscriptions written in the un-deciphered syllabary of Late Bronze Age
Cyprus (1500-1200 BC): the so-called Cypro-Minoan script. In conjunction with
Cypro-Minoan Inscriptions Volume 1: Analysis, this volume focuses on the
physical reality of the inscribed objects containing Cypro-Minoan and the
archaeological contexts in which they were found. Offering a detailed,
systematic, and rigorous examination of both the objects and their functions
in the material record, it proposes a new way of examining the inscriptions.
This comprehensive standpoint therefore considers not only the inscriptions
themselves, but more importantly the contexts and functions of the inscribed
objects, which are significant for the documentary evidence they bear and the
part they play as physical entities manufactured, shaped, and used by past
peoples for a defined purpose.
