Description

Disc of Phaistos
Disc of Phaistos [370 Faistos disc]

 

 

 

The Phaistos disc is a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos on the Greek island of Crete. 

 

 

 
 

It is covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols.Both surfaces of this clay disc are covered with hieroglyphs arranged in a spiral zone, impressed on the clay when it was damp. The signs make up groups divided from each other by vertical lines, and each of these groups should represent a word.

 Its purpose and meaning, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology.  Some has labeled the Phaistos Disc the earliest typewritten work.

 

 


1700 BC. Archaeological museum of Heraklion.
