Cypro-Minoan Inscriptions

Volume 1: Analysis

Silvia Ferrara

  • Divided into two broad sections, the volume contextualises the script in its historical setting, considers its role in the material culture of Cyprus, focuses on a new typology of the inscribed objects, identifies scribal practices, and seeks to assess the influences of the Aegean Linear and the Near Eastern cuneiform traditions on Cypriot writing.
  • Extensive bibliography and cross-referencing with clear explanations of technical terminology, and a multidisciplinary approach.
  • Fully illustrated throughout.
