Unknown language found in ancient clay tablet

19 posts in this topic

Your homeland has been taken over by a foreign power. You are forced to move to a frontier town far from your home and work in the palace of the governor. Your name, perhaps the only link to your mother tongue, is recorded in the household accounts in the local script.

This could be the story of some of the women who were attached to the Ziyaret Tepe palace in the ancient Assyrian city of Tušhan over 2500 years ago. Their names were inscribed in cuneiform characters on the clay tablet shown above, which was baked in an accidental fire at the governor's palace around 700 BC.

Wow, that is an entertaining notion. These slaves have had their names travel the course of centuries in the most inadvertant way, I like it.

How delightful a new language. Put it right next to Extruscan which is also from 700BC.

The top line reads.....

Pulu si bagumba!

The list of names appears to be the passengers and crew of the S.S. Minnow.

The mystery deepens!

That is an idea. Indeed very little is know about Gutian's so finding a record that they created would be a great discovery. Maybe it is a legend they told, or prof that they were not as barbaric as we originally thought.

Those languages is inter mix more then one language combine as for example like how English gathers words and changed it over the years.
