The Minister of Culture, Lina Mendoni, presented, on 20 March 2024, at the Scuola Archaeologica Italiana di Atene, the two-volume work by Louis Godart and Anna Sacconi, “Les archives du roi Nestor. Corpus des inscriptions en linéaire B de Pylos” (The archives of King Nestor. The corpus of inscriptions in Linear B of Pylos), Pasiphae XIII-XIV, Pisa-Roma, Fabrizio Serra Editore, 2019-2020, at the Scuola Archaeologica Italiana di Atene.

The two volumes and one more monograph on the same subject, by the distinguished academic Louis Godart, refer to the clay tablets of Linear B of Pylos, as researched and recorded by the two eminent Italian archaeologists. Linear B, a form of ancient Greek used in the records of the Mycenaean kingdoms in the second millennium BC, in the Bronze Age.

Louis Godart, an internationally renowned archaeologist and academic, has dedicated his life to the reunification of the Parthenon Sculptures in the Acropolis Museum.

In her speech, the Minister of Culture Lina Mendoni stressed: “The huge work and the revision of the established view proposed by the author reminds us that the debate on the Pylos Tablets and the Aegean Inscriptions in general is not over. The dialogue, however, cannot continue without the in-depth study of these three volumes.”
