The Silver Fibula from Mavro Spelio: an Example of Linear A Script

Many scholars have dealt with this subject so far, however they have not agreed on what the text, incised on the fibula, refers to. Some argue that the text refers to a male or female who asks information from the oracle of the dead about the proper doctor who can cure a certain disease that makes a woman barren. Others have the opinion that this inscription is about a young woman who wants to know the identity of her future husband, a scientific version aiso shared by the author of this article.
