David Olmsted deposited Translation of Calf-Bearer Text from Pre-Parthenon Athens in Alphabetic Akkadian References Drought (499 BCE) – Updated in the group Alphabetic Akkadian on Humanities Commons 2 years, 8 months ago
This paper provides evidence that Alphabetic Akkadian was being used in the Greek sphere of influence as an ancient authority temple language (like Latin in near modern Europe) prior to the mid-400’s BCE when the nationalistic fervor surrounding their war with the Persian empire replace it with Greek. Its Greek use is also evidenced by the 499 BCE Alphabetic Akkadian texts from Naxos (Olmsted Jan. 9, 2021). Alphabetic Akkadian was the first written empire language appearing in the bronze age to facilitate trade throughout Mesopotamia and the Mediterranean. Its alphabetic version used in the Mediterranean derives from the Minoans starting around 1700 BCE. (Olmsted June 2020, July 2020). The Calf-Bearer text references the life-power connective goddess Ayu of the Ancient Pagan Paradigm. Athen’s unique patron goddess Athena seems to be Ayu who has acquired motion powers as well (as evidenced by the Athenian owl).
