50 - The Syllable LO : 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 50th posting in this series (which started here), and presents the Syllable LO 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 some "filler" material. After I get all the syllables online, I will clean up the individual pages by making images of the various signs and uploading them to eliminate the current text resolution deficiencies, but it is a massive amount of tedious extra graphics work, so I am not doing it right now, as it is not essential for online purposes. One can see the full grid for the syllable on the scanned image.



The Syllable LO in the Minoan Aegean Sign Concordance (by Andis Kaulins)
LO
"pour liquid, fluid,
libation"
λεος “smooth, even”
“smooth, polish, grind”
(i.e. using applied,
running or poured
water, liquid or fluid for
this purpose)

Sumerian
Note: The Sumerian
libation sign is virtually
identical to the dropping
drops Axe sign, while
Old Kingdom Pharaonic
Egyptian hieroglyhs for
libation are similar,
retaining the “drops”
concept, suggesting the
original sign concept
may have shown
raindrops falling from
the firmament above.
Cypriot

LO
__________
The connection
of Linear B QA-
SI-RE-U with
Homeric basileus
meaning "king" is
undeniable, but it
is equally clear
that the
Mycenaean
quasileus was
nothing more
than some kind
of chief or leader
of a small group,
in one case a
group of
bronzesmiths.”
Phaistos Disk
no similar sign




Because of
no “O” vowel
in the writing
of the
presumed
predecessor
script for

the

consonants
essentially
have only
four
vowels viz.

combination
Axe of Arkalochori
󿼌or󿼅
LO
My decipherment of the
Axe of Arkalochori reads
overseer of smiths
super (hyper-) smooth
(for the) ruler
Simple-syllabically that is
PA-SE-LA Overseer
LO-THI-NE
smoothened
PA-RU-LO
super-smooth
PA-LA-KU axe
(A)RO-KU-TE for ruler
