“The Cretan Hieroglyphic script is a non-deciphered writing system found in Crete and, sporadically, on the islands of the Aegean Sea (Kythira and Samothrace)th  from the 18-th to the 17th centuries BC, the period of the so-called “First Palaces” on Crete. All the same, it is possible that it was first used in the “pre-palatial” period. In fact, some seals from central Crete, datable from the 21st to the 19th centuries BC, present traces of a similar writing system (the so-called “Archanes script”, named after the place where the seals were found).”                                                                                                                                Image from same site

===== THE QUESTION IS ==========

If you give to some childs modelling clay for making some simple shapes, finally  how many will show by chance this shape ?                                                                                            1 out of 200; 1 out of 600; 1 out of 1.000 ?

Probably as Mr. E.Papakitsos and G.Kenanidis allready advanced the hipothesis, (me sustaining also with own arguments) that all Aegean writing systems, (beginning with Aegean Proto-Linear)                                                                                                                              – has a fillum=genetic relation with sumerian proto-cuneiform writing.                              & early minoans were sumerian migrants

Evangelos Papakitsos at University of West Attica .
<< Based on the previous linguistic evidence and conditions, it has been
suggested that a very suitable candidate language as the base for creating the Aegean scripts could be the Sumerian. Being an agglutinative language, it both
exhibits the matching syllabic pattern of the CV-type, and it can justify the phonetic values of the Linear-A/B and Cypro-Minoan signs as well, through the rebus
principle. It is also suggested that the formation of each Aegean script could have been conducted in the late 3rd millennium BC by means of absorption from a parent
script, named Protolinear, being created by a scribal guild of Sumerian linguistic origin.>>

‎<< CV-type phonotactic is usually found in agglutinative languages, a feature that in LA has been ignored although observed very early by Duhoux (1998) and recently by
Davis (2014) as well. Such a well-studied nearby agglutinative language of the 3rd millennium BCE were the Sumerian. Thus, instead of claiming that a very complex writing system had been intentionally devised, we may adopt a simpler explanation, according to the Ockham’s Razor principle (Rodríguez-Fernández, 1999), which is that
LA (and LB) script is a typical case of alloglottography (Rubio, 2006). According to the CP theory, the Sumerian scribes, who invented the original script, had to write in languages other than their own mother tongue, which can deduce that all the “non-Minoan” languages being written with LA/LB are quite distorted.
…. a suitable period of an arrival of the first Sumerian settlers at Crete can be defined between 2800-2600 BCE. >>

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~                                                                                                      I suppose that this sumerian “influence” was exercited in Crete and Cyclades (note that oldest remains in Aegean/EBA=EarlyBronzeAge are in Cyclades).                                               Further, I suppose that from Cyclades (as Tartaria artefacts found close by are evidenced), this early writing (carried by a 1-st,2-nd degree relative trader, metal prospector/craftsman ?), reached Danubian area, so we have the “mysterious Tartaria tablets”.
