It then discusses the further implications of this conclusion, in particular for the interpretation of the undeciphered signs *56 and *22, which are often assigned to the same series as pu₂, as well as any other similar signs which may exist. This discussion illustrates the crucial impact that establishing a single sign’s value may have on the wider understanding of the Linear B script, as well as on its relationship with its parent script Linear A and even the possibility of reconstructing aspects of the Minoan language. dc.description.sponsorship This article is based on research carried out as part of my PhD thesis, entitled ‘The undeciphered signs of Linear B’, which was submitted to the University of Cambridge in April 2016, and was supported by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (grant number AH/J500094/1), the British Federation of Women Graduates’ J.
