Excerpt from Scripta Minoa, Vol. 1: The Written Documents of Minoan Crete, With Special Reference to the Archives of Knossos; The Hieroglyphic and Primitive Linear Classes With an Account of the Discovery of the Pre-Phoenician Scripts

For these reasons the First Part of the present volume has been devoted to a summary View of all the successive types of Minoan script, including the primitive pictographic, the hieroglyphic, and the advanced linear classes. Their genesis is traced from a widespread European family of immemorial antiquity, and the place occupied by them among other early forms of writing traceable throughout the Mediterranean basin is as far as possible defined.
