Abstract

CYNTHIA W. SHELMERDINE - JOHN BENNET TWO NEW LINEAR B DOCUMENTS FROM BRONZE AGE PYLOS* In the course of recent archaeological work within the fenced area of the so-called Palace of Nestor at Ano Englianos in southwestern Messenia, two new Linear B documents have come to light: a completely preserved nodule (PL I; Fig. 1) and a small fragment of a page-shaped tablet (PL II; Fig. 2). Both finds were brought to our attention in the summer of 1992, and we have assigned them the next available numbers in the Pylos sequence. The nodule, which was discovered earlier, is therefore Wr 1480 and the tablet fragment Xn 1481. The finds are described in detail below. Nodule Wr 1480 (Chora Museum inv. no. 3539) The nodule came to light in 1988 (October 9) when Mr Yiannis Rokanas, a guard at the site of the Palace of Nestor, noted a rather Study, drawing and photography of these documents were conducted as part of the Pylos Regional Archaeological Project, under the auspices of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens.
