Description

Bennett thanks Ventris for his proposal of a ‘transcript index’ and suggests changes, including the inclusion of the symbols rather than just transcriptions. He speaks about frequency of syllables and the likelihood of a large difference between Linear A and Linear B. Future plans, including using Kober’s Knossos transcriptions, drawings, and photographs to study the Knossos materials, are discussed in the conclusion.
