Abstract

RAY BROWN THE ETEOCRETAN INSCRIPTION FROM PSYCHRO In a recent study (Kadmos 15, 1976, 84--86) Robert Stieglitz is correct, I believe, in regarding this inscription s a dedication. He reads the third line s ENETH ('Enete son of Sippai'), the name of the dedicator, and this Interpretation is to be preferred to Cyrus Gordon's ENETH (*-nkt-y b-'rs ypy, Over my resting place in Land of Beauty')1 since it not only makes better sense of the whole inscription2 but also accords with the apparent spacing of words on the stone, s will be shown below. However, his f ll Interpretation is open to two objections: first, the reading of the initial line s is almost certainly incorrect; second, the transliteration of the fourth line (the three 'linear' signs) s i-pi-ti must be regarded s at best not proven. In his reading Stieglitz follows Gordon, who in turn followed Simon Davis in his publication The Phaistos Disk and the Eteocretan Inscriptions from Psychro and Praisos (Johannesburg 1961). Davis himself based his reading upon that given by Spyridon Marinatos in Minoica (Festschrift ... Johannes Sundwall, Berlin 1958).
