Cultural Note
One of the most mysterious objects from ancient Crete is the Phaistos Disc. It's a round piece of clay that was found in 1908 by Luigi Pernier, an Italian archaeologist, at the site of a Minoan palace in Phaistos. The disc has a collection of symbols on both sides, arranged in a spiral that goes from the edge to the center. There are 241 symbols in total, and they look like they were made by pressing different stamps into the wet clay. No one knows for sure what the disc means or where it came from. Some people think it's a calendar, a game, a religious object, or even a hoax. It's now on display at the museum in Heraklion, where you can see it for yourself.
