This pioneering quantity methods the languages and scripts of historical Cyprus from an interdisciplinary viewpoint, with a essentially linguistic and epigraphic procedure supplemented by way of a attention in their historic and cultural context. the focal point is on furthering our wisdom of the non-Greek languages/scripts, in addition to appreciating their position in terms of the far better understood Greek language at the island. Following on from contemporary advances in Cypro-Minoan reports, those tough, as a rule overdue Bronze Age inscriptions are reassessed from first ideas. an identical strategy is taken for non-Greek languages written within the Cypriot Syllabic script through the first millennium BC, mainly the single often often called Eteocypriot. the ultimate part is then devoted to the Phoenician language, which was once in use on Cyprus for a few 1000's of years. the result's a cautious reappraisal of those languages/scripts after greater than a century of occasionally arguable scholarship.
