Description [link]: The Chart compares three Cretan writing systems. The columns are labeled H (Hieroglyphic), A (Linear A), B (Linear B). The first two groups of columns show the first 30 syllabograms of Linear B (with their phonetic value when it is known). The third group reproduces 15 of the Linear B ideograms (with their Latin transcriptions). The fourth and fifth groups show the first 15 signs of Linear A which have no parallel in Linear B and the first 15 hieroglyphic signs which have no corresponding signs in either Linear A or Linear B.
