19 - The Syllable RO : Origins of Writing in Western Civilization and the Kaulins Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (MinAegCon™): A Syllabic Grid of Mycenaean Greek Linear B Script, the Cypriot Syllabary, the Phaistos Disk, two Old Elamite Scripts, the Inscription on the Axe of Arkalochori, and Comparable Signs from Sumerian Pictographs and Egyptian Hieroglyphs

This is the 19th posting in this series (which started here), and presents the Syllable RO in the Syllabic Grid. Each syllable is presented in its own posting.

There is first a scan of a "syllabic" table excerpt from the original Microsoft Word manuscript -- the links there are not clickable because it is one image.

That image is followed by the original text -- the links there are clickable -- but you can not see the Aegean Fonts or images embedded in Microsoft Word, as these do not resolve in Blogger, so you will see "a ? ? filler".

The Syllable RO in the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (by Andis Kaulins)

The Linear B symbol B68
could be an abstract
representation of an oar
for rowing. Additional
Indo-European terms
for English "oar" are:
Norwegian: åre,
Icelandic ár
Swedish åra,
Estonian aer,
Finnish airo,
Latvian airis, and
Lithuanian iriu "to row".
The clear logic of the
Cypriot signs “boat” and
“oar” confirm this
analysis internally.
See also the syllable NE.
"rowers, oars"
water surface is horizontal (see also KE)
Linear B

𐁊 (68)



Phaistos Disk

hieroglyph Gardiner #P8
The Axe of Arkalochori.
Either an arrow, spear
or an oar (most likely).

If an arrow,
see this
iron one
from Crete.
