Toward a catalogue of ships in Linear B

Post by PJK » Wed Aug 08, 2018 11:17 am

I'm looking for feedback on a project to take Linear B beyond the material evidence. Before extending the exercise to include epitaphs and formulaic phrases I'm asking myself is this wasted effort? The premise is that if Linear B is Greek it can be extended to write poetry and history. All that's needed is more and better words. ... e_evidence

I've just read Rob Wiseman's paper 'A Mycenaean Iliad' and am in awe of the exquisite analysis and his knowledge of PIE, a subject of which I am totally ignorant.
Who knows truly whence this emanation has arisen?
Only God knows or maybe s/he does not.
