Minoan Linear A, Linear B, Knossos & Mycenae

Translation of Linear B tablet, KN 586 Rm 11, Knossos,  by Rita Roberts:

KN 586 M m 11This is far from being a straightforward tablet to decipher. It presents at least 3 difficulties:1. the presence of the relatively rare logogram RIYO (see the tablet above) in the putative personal name ARIYOA.2. the presence of digamma (#) twice in the name on line 2, which could be either the putative personal name, KOWOWEYA or RUWOWEYA, depending on how one is able to decipher the first left-truncated syllabogram on that line, which could be either KO or RU.3. the presence of  what appears to be the rare syllabogram JU at the end of the second line, but we cannot even be sure of that.The tablet is damaged enough to raise the questions in 2. and 3. above.
