Omtale Greek Writing from Knossos to Homer
This text examines the origin of the Greek alphabet and treats the advent of the alphabet script as a point which lies along an unbroken continuum of Greek literacy. Woodard argues that those persons responsible for adapting the Phoenician consonantal script for Greek use were scribes accustomed to writing Greek with the syllabic script of Cyprus. This may be of value to scholars and students of classics, near Eastern studies, and history of writing and literacy.
