Ancient Laconian Doric Alphabet

Post by rudy1988 » Mon Sep 19, 2016 9:27 am

Hello,

I am looking for a table with all Laconian Doric alphabet letters and an english equivalent to every letter. The laconian I am referring to is the ancient Greek Doric Laconia spoken in Sparta.

All I was able to find are essays on the topic but nothing clear enough to get a clear idea. Does anybody know how to spell Sparta in Laconian Doric ? that would help too

All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Rudy

Laconian for Sparta is ΣΠΑΡΤΑ.
(English letter-by-letter equivalent: Sparta.)
