Trojan script

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Trojan script is a series of signs of unknown origin found on vessels from Troy excavated by Heinrich Schliemann's expedition. Their status is disputable. A Soviet historian of antiquity Nikolay Kazansky found them much similar to Linear B signs,[1] while another Soviet historian Arkady Molchanov regarded them as "imitation of writing".

The inscription No. 2444, if compared with Linear B (or Linear A) signs, may be read: ku?-to-a-ro-ka-ro-ju??-?-ro-tu

The inscription No. 2445 is illegible and seems to have partly deteriorated; several signs may be identified as fragments of Linear A or Linear B signs but not as whole signs.
