This work builds on research Phaistos disc(Phaestos dick) Russian well-known historian and linguist

AA Molchanov.

That's already been more than a hundred years, as was found by an Italian archaeological expedition on the excavations of the palace on the acropolis of the ancient city of Phaistos on Crete, the famous drive that dates back to around 1600 BC during the heyday of the Minoan civilization. Front and back side of the disc are covered with stamped marks, which form a spiral inscription.

They generally are not decrypted until now, despite the hard work of many researchers. But they have done a lot. There is no doubt the beginning of the text on side A and the continuation of his side in the direction of reading the text, namely, from right to left, from the edge to the center, the nature of syllabic writing, the determination of the mark 02 "head, adorned with feathers" as a determiner and Cretan origin of the disc. However, the structure of the inscriptions are not considered, we have in mind the location of words against each other.

The question arises. Once the text of the unusual, and stamped, then there must be some kind of text written by hand, reading that syllable for syllable, picking up stamps, slow ... did the corresponding prints on clay ancient minoets "printer". What kind of this text?

The answer to this question, we get as a result of structuring the text of the Phaistos disc (now readable from left to right), in which groups of words and single words are arranged one above the other, subject to the principle of symmetry. As a result, we have labels resembling a bilateral poleaxes (four-blade, and a two-blade). They are like the blades on crescent moon. Therefore, we do quite probable assumption that the Phaistos disc is connected with the cult of the moon, the moon-god cult, who were made rulers of initiation alive, the sacrifice of animals (mainly bulls), by killing them and then burning at bonfire. This is indicated by the fact that, as we know, the disc has been found among the ashes, black soil, as well as a large number of charred bones of the bulls.

The structure of text Phaistos disc detected by us once again in a conclusive way proves:

a)That the text begins on a side A and proceeds on a side B since on a side B are placed: the rest of the basic inscription of the big poleaxe, two inscriptions of poleaxes of the smaller sizes, as well as an inscription of "printer" (the block the third).

b)That decodings of "centrists" (Meyer, Georges, Otkupshchikov J.V., Oreshkin P.P., Grinevich G.S., Sherban A.T., etc.), reading the text on both sides of a disc from the center to edge, to put it mildly, are not correct since to start to stamp the text on a side A from a mark 38 words А31, having previous two words В1 and В2 on a side B In forms bilateral (four-blade) poleaxe, "printer" could not in any way.

Mystery of the Phaistos disc disclosed?

Text contents of this disc - the rulers of Crete initiation of high-god of the moon, copied, or labels, made in the form of three bilateral poleaxes, or inscriptions on poleaxes. One of these poleaxes, the largest, four-blade may be used as a lunar calendar. The disc itself - the moon during a full moon - a sort of portable version of the dedications and calendar.
