Height 22 cm (8.66 inches) Diameter 15 cm (5.91 inches). The Disc of Phaistos is the oldest written monument of Minoan Crete. It is a Disc of baked clay that has an inscription of both sides, dating to the end of the Middle Minoan Period shortly before 1600 BC. The Disc has found in 1908 in a built-in space on the north wing of the palace of Phaistos. The text of the Disc consists of a series of symbols in helican form and are read from the periphery to the center. The symbols are imprinted on the surface of the Disc while it was still fresh. The text of the first one continues on the second side of the Disc. There are various symbols on the Phaistos Disk, among them human figures, objects and linear symbols. The navy, the Ship, the rosette and the heads of cats indicate a cultural connection of the language of the Disc with the Minoan Civilization.
