On Marco Merlini’s analysis of Tartaria tablets signs


<< work in progress>>

MR. MARCO MERLINI, WITH DEEP RESPECT:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        DESPITE THE MONUMENTAL WORK, SPENDING THOUSEND OF HOURS, TRAVELING TO ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES AND CORESPONDING ARTEFACTS RESEARCH, CONDENSED IN MANY BOOKS AND PAPERS,                                                      – THE RESULTS GATHERED RATHER IN AN EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTARY  WORK THAN OBTAINING THE CONCLUSIVE RESULTS.                                                                        THE EXPECTED RESULT WAS, FROM MY RECOLLECTION,  TO PROOVE THAT THE VINCA SCRIPT IS A WRITING, AS WAS THE GOAL AND TARGET ANOUNCED SOME 12 YEARS BEFORE.

ATTENTION ! THE WORD-CONCEPT OF “SCRIPT” IS TRICKY, BEEING EQUATED AS “PUTTING DOWN SIGNS WITH HAND”, BUT ATTENTION IF A MANUSCRIPT CONTAIN SIGNS MADE BY HAND AND IT IS INDEED WRITING, A SCRIPT COULD NOT BE NECESSARY A WRITING, BUT ONLY A COLLECTION OF SIGNS MADE BY HAND EVEN IF SIGNS ARE UNKNOWN OR  UNKNOWN MEANING                                     SO WITH THIS WORD An AVERAGE CULTURAL LEVEL PERSON COULD BE FOOLED or THE OTHER, THE STORYTELLER, COULD ELUDE, CIRCUMVENT AND ESCAPE, INDUCING THE ILLUSION THAT A SCRIPT IS VERY CLOSE TO, OR A TRUE WRITING !                                                                                                                                   THIS NO WAY MEAN THAT THE SIGNS ARE SURE RANDOMLY OR SURE THERE IS NOT WRITING. COULD BE SOMEDAY DECIPHERED ; ( AS WAS THE CASE OF LINEAR B. BEFORE MICHAEL VENTRIS DECIPHERMENT WAS “A SCRIPT” )

FROM THIS, BECAUSE ONE MUST EXTRACT FROM A SCRIPT MESSAGES.                     NOT PROOVED YET THAT AT LEAST WE HAVE PROTO WRITING.                       PROTO-WRITING NOT USE A LANGUAGE, BUT ICONS (PICTOGRAMS,LOGOGRAMS,IDEOGRAMS) TO COMUNICATE AND TRANSMIT  SOMETHING.                                                                                                                             IN PROTO-WRITING THE MESSAGES ARE RAW, GENERAL AND NOT AS CLEAR AS IN WRITING.                                                                                                                        WHAT HAPPENED AND WHAT IS THE DAM WICH STOPPED HIM ?                                 THERE ARE SOME REASONS AND EXPLANATIONS:                                                             – HE IS NOT REALISING THAT AT SO OLD EXPECTED AGES (5.300-3.500). SOCIETIES ADVANCED VERY SLOWLY TOWARD TRUE WRITING;                                    – THERE ARE NO HARD EVIDENCES OF PROTO-WRITING FOUND BEFORE 3.500 B.C.                                                                                                                                                  – FOR A SOCIETY IS NOT ENOUGH TO BE DEVELOPED IN SOME ASPECTS ONLY, IN ORDER TO BE IN GOOT HEALTH, GOOD LIVING, INCREASING DEMOGRAPHIC RATE, FOOD PRODUCTION TO BE PUSHED OR TO APPEAR THE NECESITY TO HAVE PERMANENT NOTATIONS OTHERS THAN PRODUCER/OWNER MARKS OR RELIGIOUS RELATED MARKINGS/ICONS.                                                                        EVIDENCES SHOW THAT ONLY  HIGH DEVELOPED SOCIETIES WITH AN SOCIAL HIERARCHY  NEDED TO KEEP ACCOUNTS BETWEEN MEMBERS , AND SAY IN A SIMILAR WAY WITH KEEPING RELIGIOUS RITES.                                                                – LOOKING ON THOUSENDS OF SIGNS, IT IS HARD TO FIND A TYPE OF ORDER, AT NECESSARY LEVEL  WHERE THERE IS NOT. I NOT SAID ANY ORDER;                 A SCRIPT IF NOT WRITING DOES NOT IMPLY THAT NOT HAVE OTHER CHANNELS TO TRANSMIT DATA.THE SAME PROBLEM ARE ENCOUNTERING SCIENTISTS WITH THE INDUS SCRIPT.                                                                                                                             WORSE THAN THIS, FOR HIM, SIGNS ARE LIKE FALLEN FROM SKY METEORITES, NOT RELATED. IF FOR EVERY SIGN HE FOUND TENS OF SIMILAR SIGNS WICH WERE USED IN ENTIRE WORLD, SOME IN AN EXTENSIVE WAY FOR WRITING THIS NOT AFECT HIM NOT IN SLIGHTES MEASURE.                                  FINALLY HE CHOOSE AND PREFERED TO GIVE TO THE MOST OF SIGNS AN ” ALLREADY FROM LONG-TIME FORGOTTEN, UNKNOWN MEANING”  BUT NOT AT ALL, SUSPENDED IN THIN AIR, BUT RATHER EQUATED VITH HIS OWN PHILOSOPHICAL CONSIDERATIONS.                                                                                        WHY?                                                                                                                                                 BECAUSE IS CONVINCED THAT THE SIGNS E.G. ON TARTARIA TABLETS ARE MUCH (OR TO MUCH ?) OLDER !                                                                                                  NOT TOOK ACCOUNT OF MIGRATIONS, OR ECONOMICAL CONNEXIONS (TRADE) AND CULTURAL TRANSMISSION. IT IS NOT SO HARD, NOR IMPOSSIBLE TO SEE HOW CULTURAL ELEMENTS (WRITING INCLUDED) ARE EVEN DISTANT, RELATED.                                                                                                                                   E.G. AS NOWDAYS ALL EUROPE IS USING LETTERS OF GREEK ORIGIN, SO PHOENICIAN WRITING WAS RELATED TO THAT GREEK-ONE. (ABC IS IN FACT ABUGIDA). PHOENICIAN IN THIS TURN RELATED TO OLD-CANAANITE.                   SCIENTISTS AS G.PAPAKITSOS AND I.KENANIDIS FOUND AEGEAN WRITINGS ARE RELETAD TO PROTO-SUMERIAN.                                                                                             I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY MR. MERLINI IS DEPRIVED OF SUCH A NECESSARY AERIAL-LIKE, LARGE PERSPECTIVE OF THE WRITING PHENOMENOM.                           I ONLY SUPPOSE BUT IF NOT SURE, PREFER NOT TO ENTER IN DETAILS;                        EG. SEARCHING IN SIGNS IN A TIME SPAN OF ALLMOST 6.000 YEARS !…BETWEEN SOME OLDER (PROTO-CUNEIFORM 3.000 B.C) AND OTHERS “NEW” (LINEAR B; SZEKELY RUNIC 500-1000 A.D), AN ORIGIN IN DANUBIAN SCRIPT (WICH IN MY OPINION THERE WAS NOT ), BUT INFLUENCE AS WELL SURE EXISTED.                                             YOU REALISE THAT IF LINEAR A (2.000-1.500 B.C.) CRETAN HIEROGLYPHIC (~2.200 B.C.) (NOT TALKING OF ETEOCRETAN 500 BC- 200 A.C.) ARE NOT FULLY DECIPHERED YET, WHAT ABOUT A WRITING SUPPOSED TO BE (ONLY BY TWO PERSONS IN THE WORLD) OF 5.300-4.000 B.C. ??                                            BUT WE ARE NOT IN A HOPELESS SITUATION. FORTUNATELY THE TARTARIA TABLETS ARE NEWER THAN 3.000 B.C. WHERE WE KNOW FROM, OR HOW WE ARE SURE ?                                                                                                                                          THE SIMPLYEST EXPLANATION FOR AN AVERAGE LEVEL PERSON, IS THAT UPON :                                                                                                                                      MOST OF THE SIGNS PRESENT ON TARTARIA TABLETS WERE ALLREADY INVENTED AND FOUND ON SUMERIAN PROTO-CUNEIFORM TABLETS IN, AND AFTER 3.000 B.C.  SO NO NEED TO SEARCH FOR OTHER INVENTORS, IN ANOTHER PLACES THAN THOSE ALLREADY PROOVED E.G.VINCA. OTHERWISE IS NO DOUBT THAT PRIMITIVE, EARLY VINCA SIGNS, OR DANUBE SCRIPT ARE MUCH OLDER THAN SUMERIAN ONES, DESPITE, DEEP SORROW,, NOT FINISHED AT LEAST IN A PROTO-WRITING.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            VINCA CIVILISATION “LEAPED” PICTOGRAPHIC STAGE (wich was otherwise for other civilisation of immense importance and proffed necessary for writing developement toward folowing stages, and finally to true writing) and jumped directly to an early proto-linear stage, sistematising and ordering elementary signs to make a writing, beeing quite a task, wich can be fulfilled only by a computer…(asisted by a human).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 From A Comparative Linguistic Study about the Sumerian Influence on the Creation of the Aegean Scripts Ioannis K. Kenanidis1, Evangelos C. Papakitsos*2 file:///C:/Users/User/Downloads/Minoan_Sumerian.pdf

“A Protolinear Script
There is a suggestion that Linear-A constitutes a linearization of the Akkadian cuneiform signs [22].However, it is normal for a script to evolve from
pictorial signs (as the Sumerian pre-cuneiform and the Aegean writing signs too) into non-recognizable forms
(as the late cuneiform), and rarely the reverse.                                                                                                                                       …… Although there are several different theories for explaining this necessity, there is also the possibility of a Protolinear script [47], which both Linear-A/B evolved from, for conveying different languages. In other words, the Protolinear could be the parent of Linear-A and Linear-B, while the Cretan Hieroglyphic could be regarded mainly, but not exclusively [8], as the decorative and ritual form of that
system for use especially on seals [48]                                                                                         The hypothesized Protolinear script consists of 120 syllabograms of the V and CV patterns, as they have been found in Linear-A/B scripts, one for each syllable
of a dialect close to the Archaic Sumerian language.There are also a few signs of disyllabic nature. The signs are those that are common to both Linear-A and B
scripts (62) and those that are exclusive to each syllabary.                                            So, we have a script of simplified icons (signs) depicting items, where the phonetic value of each sign is related to the Archaic Sumerian word for the depicted item. Many of them are related to the associated signs of the Cretan Hieroglyphic, also to the Sumerian pictograms and sometimes to the cuneiform equivalents. ”     
                                                                                                                                                           BUT HOW THESE INFLUENCES, IN WHAT DIRECTIONS, AND IN WICH MEASURE EXISTED AND WORKED MUST  SCIENTIFIC RESEARCHES COULD TELL.                                                                       … EVEN I AM TAKING ACCOUNT OF A DELAY TIME IN THE TRANSMISSION PROCESSUS, EG AS TABLETS TO BE LATER THAN 2.700 B.C. , AS WAS FROM THE START THE HYPOTHESIS OF MR. VLASSA (AND NOT ONLY!). I PUT THE TARTARIA TABLETS RATHER WITH MINOAN PLACES AND ON DIRECT SUMERIAN INFLUENCE.                                                                                                                                  ADDING TO THIS, IN MY OPINION, THERE ARE CLUES THAT WE HAVE SOME SIGNS WICH APPEARED LATER. WORSE THAN THIS, I AM SUSPECTING, WE COULD BE CONFRONTED WITH NOT QUITE HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION (WITH SLIGHT CHANCES)TO HAVE EVEN A FEW SIGNS WICH ARE ONLY SOME HUNDRED YEARS B.C. OLD    EG. AS TO BE FROM ETEOCRETAN/ARCHAIC GREEK WRITINGS !

Of two or more acting/(fighting !?) animals?                                                                                    So, could be rather a human silhuette, an god(ess) or in extremis, even a ghost                     – not tree, mut much out of general “vegetal motif” something more precise (eg.branch, cereal ear, cereal/s )                                                                                                                                – much exactly than goat, in fact “goats !), due of the horns shape and length, of caprinae family indeed, could be ibex or better Cretan wild goats, “cri-cri’s”                     Picture, from Wikimedia Commons  File:Cri – cri, Soutěska Samaria – Kréta

          “DARA”                                                                                                 – remembering a sumerian proto-cuneiform tablet, my opinion is that we have on tablet depicted an offering (of goats) ritual to some deity.                                                                For this scenario no matter if ordinary human or god(dess)                                                     note                                                                                                                                                       Some of my attempted tablets interpreting/reading proposals contain by chance or not, words:                                                                                                                                                  “goat” in sumerian and IE,greek, also “eat” (sum. ud and ku; gr. hed,ede )

Noticed that after Badiny it is “TUD,TUR”=”settlement foundations”.   After R.Kolev it is Labat 99,”EN” !Wrong!                                                                                     Merlini say, that it is convergent with Indus 53 and Luwian “trone”. Not completely found in Linear A, AB55, but in Linear B “Pa3”.                                                                                In Szekely runic is “Z” After Hruskaq it is “agricultural field”                                                    In akkadian is partlyL 99″Lord,God” or L 436 “settlement foundations”

Merlini concluded that:                                                                                                                          – it is an abstract sign wich make introduction of ezoteric message”   ;   an incipit that introduce a message”                                                                                                                            – also could be “an auspicious sign or an invocation”.                                      =========================                                                                                                                  me:    IF YOU SUSTAIN AND PERSIST FOR AN OLD AGE (5.300-..??) FOR THE TABLETS, THEN YOU MUST COMPARE THE SIGNS FROM THE TABLETS FIRST WITH SUMERIAN PROTO-CUNEIFORM ONES, USED AROUND 3.000 BC, NOT WITH SIGNS USED LATER !

GAR” (meaning “ninda”=”cereal, bread“)                                                                           This sign is supposed to originate for the “rimmed bowl” and the sign was used for “ration (1 unit)”, no matter cereals or bread !
 D-shaped sign was noticed by Denise Schmandt Besserat in URUK IV-III, supposed to be an pictographic. with unknown meaning,  in “triangle” category/ column IX. But no evidence of the traced sign on tablets.
From http://en.finaly.org/index.php/The_earliest_precursor_of_writing
Was used by egyptian as well for “loaf of bread” as for sign “T”. I found this sign also as beeing used in Linear B for volumes. So, beeing used in so many places in relation to cerels/food and jars.
So my primary rendering  for the signs D D o o is 1+1+10+10=22 ration   (22 x 0,8 L=17,6 Liter ?)

From  https://indusscriptmore.blogspot.com/search/label/Linear%20B                                           << In proto-cuneiform, a “D” shape with a single internal stripe is GAR, which came to mean “storeroom; to form.”  Another sign resembles a “D” with three short backslashes inside: IR~c, which came to mean “scent, odor; perfume, fragrance.”  Neither represents a musical instrument.  In contrast, “round harp” is BALAG, a curved “b” shape with three backslashes joining the rounded, lower segment with the upper stem.  This is a representation of a real stringed instrument.  Note that it does not resemble the Indus STRIPED DEE.

 

Inscription from M-73: STRIPED DEE / SPEAR / COMB.

There is another “D” whose meaning one should consider, this one found among the Luwian hieroglyphs.  In this case, the rounded side faces downward, with the flat side up.  Its meaning is CAELUM, “sky.”  This “D” shape contains a single stripe paralleling the flat side and four short strokes perpendicular to the stripe.  These last four join the stripe and the flat side of the “D.”  Variants of the proto-cuneiform GAR also include short strokes at a 90 degree angle to the long internal stripe.  The “b” variant has two and the “a” variant three.                                                                                                                                    Proto-Elamite contains a single sign that is essentially “D” shaped, again with the rounded side downward, flat side upward (M378).  There are, in addition, two stripes inside the “D” that parallel the flat side, each stripe also extending a bit beyond the edges of the “D” shape.  Also, inside the basic “D” shape is another, smaller “D” shape that shares the same flat side.  The meaning of this sign is unknown. >>

So, anywhere plain “D”

Larsa (Sumerian logogram: UD.UNUGKI,                                                                                                     read Larsamki :”the place,land of sun-god (Shamash) abode

The city’s patron deity was Nanna (in AkkadianSin), the Sumerian and Akkadian (AssyrianBabylonianmoon god, and the name of the city is in origin derived from the god’s name  UNUGKI, literally “the abode (UNUG) of Nanna”.
                                                                                                                                                                     The sign above is the standard “Larsam” of the Larsa city, where it is the temple of shamash/Samas.                                                                                                                                       ——————————

What is interesting to note is that these geographical names, for example UD+UNU (Larsa), or SHESH+UNU (Ur), seem to be direct adaptions of the Early protoliterate City Seals. This becomes clearer still when we note the cuneiform sign UNU, a part of the geographical names, (when flipped vertical) appears to be a direct adaption from the ‘base’ or ‘stand‘ in the seals. It symbolises the abode of the deity, so UD+UNU, is the home of the Sun god, and the UNU is a part of his temple or ziggurat. And here we see the ePSD entry for unu as dwelling:                          “unu [DWELLING] (1511x: Lagash II, Ur III, Old Babylonian) wr. unu6; unu2; unu “banquet; dining hall; the most sacred part of a temple; seat, throne; dwelling, domicile, abode; temple”

Don’t know for sure !                                                                                                                             Could be the sign of the goddess A-SA-SA-RA (as Ishara, Astarte, Ishtar, Isis, Tanit),
                                                                                                                                                           From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minoan_snake_goddess_figurines
From palace of Knossos
   …..Although Linear A is not yet deciphered, Palmer relates tentatively the inscription   a-sa-sa-ra-me which seems to have accompanied goddesses, with the Hittite išhaššara, which means “mistress”                                                                                                                  ….Some scholars relate the snake goddess with the Phoenician Astarte (virgin daughter). She was the goddess of fertility and sexuality and her worship was connected with an orgiastic cult. Her temples were decorated with serpentine motifs.
….or rather I am tempted (due of much higher closeness of ALL THE SIGNS with sumerian proto-cuneiform ones, than to Aegean writings signs), to give slightly more chances to:
UD,”sunUNUG: “inner, sacred precinct in temple”                                                                UD.UNUG “inner sacred precinct of the Sun-God temple”

“LARSA =     
Seal Impression from Ur: UD+UNU (Larsa):                                                                        This becomes clearer still when we note that the cuneiform sign UNU, a part of the geographical names, (when flipped vertical) appears to be a direct adaption from the ‘base’ or ‘stand’ in the seals. It symbolises the abode of the deity, so UD+UNU is the home of the Sun god, and the UNU is a part of his temple.
UNU = UNUG ?
A question we have left unexplored pending further reading, is another view of the AB/UNU sign itself. While it may be called in general terms the ‘base’ or ‘stand’ in the city seal, on a closer examination this symbol and its corresponding cuneiform sign are shown to mean “abode” and to refer to the inner sanctum of the temple of the city god.”

In conclusion, if the sign finds faint graphic paralels in ancient Near Eastern,  and Aegean systems of writing, (apart from the Indus script) it is deeply rooted in the danube script where is present mainly in its core culture and developing area, clustered in the early Vinca  and in the territory betwen Transylvania and Serbia.                                                                                  —————————

Nergal seems to be in part a solar deity, sometimes identified with Shamash, but only representative of a certain phase of the sun. Portrayed in hymns and myths as a god of war and pestilence, Nergal seems to represent the sun of noontime and of the summer solstice that brings destruction, high summer being the dead season in the Mesopotamian annual cycle. He has also been called “the king of sunset”.[6] Over time Nergal developed from a war god to a god of the underworld.  ”                                        …………….
