On this basis it would appear that the Greeks then took back their own Minoan/Mycenaean script which had been modified by Phoenicians and modified it again by re-introducing vowels.
The only problem that remains here is the question of why abandon the cuneiform when it obviously worked?
The evidence actually points to Mycenaean scribes adapting the same (similar) sets of symbols to represent both languages.
The evidence actually shows that the Greek alphabet and the Phoenician alphabet have the same common point of origin in the lands in which settled the already literate Sea-People.
The palaces of the Protopalatial period were destroyed in c. It seems a little too coincidental that a new script appeared on the island shortly after this and that the earlier Kretan hieroglyphic script (Phaestos disc) is replaced.
Bulgaria is the most likely source of this influx and accounts for the similarities of the Linear A, with the “Old European” Vinca symbols which are known to have had a long history there.
Once they were found to predate Sumerian writing, “the tablets were dismissed as meaningless jumbles of signs.” p.68 !
The appearance of Linear A in Krete too corresponds to the revised dating of Kretan civilization and appears to be in use after c.
He divided Minoan Krete into Prepalatial (2600-1900 BC), Protopalatial (1900-1700 BC), Neopalatial (1700-1400 BC), and Postpalatial (1400-1150 BC).Yet, even if the “Vinca signs” did not quite represent writing, “The Vinca signs thus represent a sophisticated system of communication…a system of pre-writng.” (p.66) The problem for scholars however has been the age of this “script” and what that implies:“…scholars on realising that the Vinca signs were simply too early to be derived from Mesopotamia, abruptly dropped the question of the European script.The so-called “phoenician” alphabet using incised symbols arose at the same time as did the Greek.“This is the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning the Philistines before Pharaoh attacked Gaza…the day has come to destroy all the Philistines and to cut off all survivors who could help Tyre and Sidon.The LORD is about to destroy the Philistines, the remnant from the coasts of Caphtor [Krete].”“From Mycenaean times there must have also have been some Aegean element in Phoenician religion, but it was not till much late, in the second half of the first millennium BC, that classical Greek influences began to predominate.
