Two Cretan signs of sumerian origin ?


First sign is Cretan hieroglyphics PA3 sign:                                                                                           From Prehistoric writings in Greece Linear A, Linear B, Cretan hieroglypphics

<<• lik ‘(phonetic value)’ : *um ku -o- ‘wolf’ (IEW 1178-
1179; de Vaan 2008: 353). An orphaned phonetic value
with no motivation in Sumerian. The sign is the logogram
for DOG (Sum. ur; cf. ur-bar-ra ‘wolf,’ lit. ‘outer dog’). In
the Sumerian cryptography known as UD.GAL.NUN the
sign KU substitutes for DOG (Krebernik 1998: 300; cf.
*cWö(n) ‘dog’).                                                                                                                             ……………..  • Ararma ~ -am, Akk. Larsam (wr. SHINING+ABODE

… Sumerian word /ku(g)/ is usually translated as “shiningbright, clean, pure,” or … metal,” which can be yellow (kug-sig17 “gold”) or white (kug-bab- bar “silver”).                                   ———————                                                                                                                                      So, 1-st step was that sumerian sign Ku (whatever language was spoken) has the first meaning in Crete, associated with the shine of metals ! 
This happened because there was an intense exploitation and trade of metals between Near-East,Anatolia (see Uluburun) and Cyprus/Crete, beginning with copper, bronze and finishing with silver and gold.
The 2-nd sign also related to shine of metals, could be :                                                                    From

The Samarra culture is characterized by a style of painted ware rich in geometric motifs: the most typical are the swastika and the cross, two elements very popular also in Iranian art of the Bronze age until the historical times, while the swastika subsequently disappears in Mesopotamia.                                              …………..If the Indo-Europeans moved from the Zagros, as I have proposed in the last post, they should reveal some affinities with other languages of the ancient Near East (by the way, the recent paper by Haak et al. has revealed a ‘Near Eastern’ genetic component in the Yamnaya people from the Russian steppe). 

And these affinities are there, for instance with Semitic languages, but also with a very ancient language, that we are not used to associate with Indo-European: Sumerian.
