Phaistos Disc

The Phaistos Disc was found in 1908 at the archaeological sit of Phaistos on the island of Crete. Both sides contain spirals of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning remain disputed. Many unsuccessful attempts have been made to decipher the code.

The disc has been dated to about 1600 B.C., and while some believe it is a forgery, most scientists consider it authentic.

The characters found on the disc have been included in the Unicode standard as code points U+101D0 through U+101FF.
