Festos

Phaistos Disk Heraklion Archaeological Museum Phaistos disk is a disc of fired clay from the Minoan Palace of Phaistos on the Greek island of Crete, possibly dating to the middle or late Minoan Bronze Age (4000 year old). Its purpose and meaning, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology. Many attempts have been made to decipher the code behind the disk's signs. Historically, almost anything has been proposed, including prayers, a narrative or an adventure story, a call to arms, a board game, and a geometric theorem While enthusiasts still belive the mystery can be solved, scholarly attempts at decipherment are thought to be unlikely to succeed unless more examples of the signs turn up somewhere, as it is generally thought that there is not enough context available for meaningful analysis. Any decipherment without external confirmation, such as succesful comparison to other inscriptions, is unlikely to be accepted as conclusive.
