This volume offers a new and interdisciplinary treatment of
syllabic writing in ancient Cyprus. A team of distinguished
scholars tackles epigraphic, palaeographic, linguistic,
archaeological, historical and terminological problems relating to
the island's writing systems in the Late Bronze Age and Iron Age,
from the appearance of writing around the fifteenth century down to
the end of the first millennium BC. The result is not intended to
be a single, unified view of the scripts and their context, but
rather a varied collection that demonstrates a range of
interpretations of the evidence and challenges some of the
longstanding or traditional views of the population of ancient
Cyprus and its epigraphic habits. This is the first comprehensive
account of the 'Cypro-Minoan' and 'Cypriot syllabic' scripts to
appear in a single volume and forms an invaluable resource for
anyone studying Cypriot epigraphy or archaeology.
