Sorry for the typo, there is a baking oven in the center of the Elaia side
or disc (Phaistos Disc being a pair of clay discs baked together). A quite
similar baking oven was found in a garden sanctuary of the bird goddess
in Moldavia (if memory serves). The old tradition of the Vinca script
and garden sanctuaries would have survived in Elaia's grove at Phigalia,
which had a mighty influence on the Argolis via Eponymous Tiryns, Lord
Laertes the gardener in Homer's Odyssey, father of Odysseus. As for bacon,
pigs have been sacrificed to Demeter, as depicted in the entrance field
to Elaia's grove. Then there are bags with unwashed wool, also a sacrifice
for Demeter-Elaia. And portable beehives. We can not only read the spiral
texts but also glean plenty of information from the signs as pictograms.
The loudspeakers of the computer stations in my library being deactivated,
and having no earphones with me, watching the video makes no sense. But
I skimmed the comments and noticed a wheel-line and PIE *kwekwlos 'wheel'
which is very interesting in the context of the Phaistos Disc, Tiryns
side, rosette in the center.
CO OC LOP named the basic organization of a fortified settlement, attentive
mind CO right eye OC enveloping hedge or fence or palisade or wall LOP
(of a POL polis) - in the middle the ruler of the attentive mind CO, around
him guards of the open eyes OC along the enveloping palisade or wall LOP.
This concept is visualized by the Tiryns side or disc of the Phaistos Disc:
in the central field, next to the rosette of Seyr Zeus, the ruler of Tiryns,
Eponymous Tiryns, on his cheek a tattoo of two tiny circles, the upper one
indicating the sky, realm of Zeus, the lower one Tiryns, ruled by Eponymous
Tiryns in the name of Zeus; around him guards with their shields, watching
the gate, and looking over the palisade or wall. A variation of the shield
is the Argos eye, emblem of the watchful union of early cities in the
Argolis, a central dot surrounded by a circle of dots, on forehead and
cheeks and chin of the staring plaster head from Mycenae.
CO OC LOP named the cyclops, one-eyed giants, most famous Polyphem, Homeric
symbol of Troy VIIa. Achilles gained victory over Hector and dragged
his dead body three times around the walls of Troy, according to Eberhard
Zangger in order to break the spell of the cyclopic wall. This implies
that the protection provided by the wall had once been enforced by magic
incantations, analogous to the banning formulae of archaic power along
the margin of the Tiryns disc. I imagine a priest wheeling three times
around an early city (like Dimini, or the round cities in the Transural,
Nation of Cities, groundplans in some cases evoking a wheel with hub
and spokes and tyre) on a horse-pulled cart, and so it was easy to get
from CO OC LOP to Cyclops and *kwekwlos 'wheel' and Sanskrit cahkra 'wheel'
and English wheel.
You may remember that I locate the PIE belt from the region of the Göbekli
Tepe to Central Asia; the first IE homeland on the banks of the Amu Darya,
centered in the triangle of Termez and Kunduz and Kurgan T'upe (at the
northern base of the Alai Mountains where copper and tin were and are
associated in the same mines); the second IE homeland in the Uralic steppes
east of the Rha Volga; and the third IE homeland in the Pontic steppes
west of the Rha Volga, where Mallory assumes the origin of the wagon with
wheels. Rha, ancient name of the Volga, is akin to Rhea, mother of Zeus
(overcomer TYR Sseyr Sseus Zeus) and Poseidon (originally a god of rivers)
and Hades (god of the Underworld, originally also the mines, his dog
guarding the precious ores from the Alai Mountains).
I don't know what the video claims, but apparently some people are not
really satisfied with the current state of Paleo-linguistics.
