Following on from contemporary advances in Cypro-Minoan reports, those tough, in most cases overdue Bronze Age inscriptions are reassessed from first rules. a similar process is taken for non-Greek languages written within the Cypriot Syllabic script through the first millennium BC, mainly the only frequently often called Eteocypriot. the ultimate part is then devoted to the Phoenician language, which was once in use on Cyprus for a few hundreds of thousands of years. the result's a cautious reappraisal of those languages/scripts after greater than a century of occasionally debatable scholarship.
