By Philippa M. Steele

This pioneering quantity methods the languages and scripts of historical Cyprus from an interdisciplinary perspective, with a essentially linguistic and epigraphic procedure supplemented by way of a attention in their historic and cultural context. the focal point is on furthering our wisdom of the non-Greek languages/scripts, in addition to appreciating their position on the subject of the far better understood Greek language at the island. Following on from fresh advances in Cypro-Minoan reports, those tricky, ordinarily past due Bronze Age inscriptions are reassessed from first ideas. an identical technique is taken for non-Greek languages written within the Cypriot Syllabic script throughout the first millennium BC, mainly the single often often called Eteocypriot. the ultimate part is then devoted to the Phoenician language, which was once in use on Cyprus for a few enormous quantities of years. the result's a cautious reappraisal of those languages/scripts after greater than a century of occasionally arguable scholarship.
