Ancient Signs

The Alphabet & the Origins of Writing

My new print & ebook
shows that modern alphabets are based on ancient alphabets rooted in syllabic scripts of the ancient world (Sumer, Egypt, Iran, Anatolia, Crete, Cyprus)

Malia, Crete

Decipherment by Andis Kaulins

A Minoan Calendric

33 Small Hollows, 1 Large Hollow

A Lunisolar Calender

The so-called "kernos" of Malia (Crete)
pictured above
is a large circular stone
that has 34 circular "hollows"
placed clock-style
on the outer perimeter.

There is also a round outline
in the center of the stone,
also surrounded by
a round outline.

The 34th "hollow" at the top
is larger than the rest.

In my opnion, this was a "luni-solar" calender
and not an offering dish for fruits and vegetables
as erroneously thought by mainstream archaeologists.

The Large circle in the center will be the Sun
and the 33 hollows around the perimeter
will mark the Moon.

The key clue to decipherment of the Stone of Malia
is the number of small hollows,
which are 33 in number.

For ancient peoples
who calculated time by the moon,
the lunar "years"
quickly got out of phase with the solar seasons,
which of course are dependent on the sun.

The solution of the ancients
was a meshing of the periods of the Sun and the Moon,
a luni-solar calendar.
A lunar year of months
 is 29.5 x 12 = 354 days.

1 month = 29.5 days,
which is the synodic period
from one new moon to the next.

In 33 years "lunar years",
i.e. 33 x 354 days,
this is equivalent to 11682 days.

32 "solar years" of 365 days
is 11680 days,
so that 32 "solar years" are equal
to 33 "lunar years"  (less two days),

i.e. after 33 "lunar years"
the position of the Moon
with respect to the Sun
is identical
and the cycle can start again.

This is still much like how the Muslim calender works.

A round "stone" representing the Moon
was set
one "hollow" forward
every new moon until it
reached its 33rd repetition
at the 34th larger "hollow"

in which a larger stone
for the solar cycle always was located.

Then the cycle began again.
