An old “CD-ROM” that nobody can decipher
It is called the “Phaistos Disk” and dates back to the Minoan civilization in Greece 3700 years ago. It is a disc that measures 16 cm in diameter, which is made of clay and contains information in the form of engraved characters. Scientists agree that it must be read in a spiral but many questions still remain about the language used. It remains a mystery even though scientists have tried to understand it and trace its history for years. However, a group of experts recently announced that the words related to “maternity” and “goddess” appear on the disc and they think the object would be a prayer intended for a Minoan goddess.
