The earliest written evidence of the Greek language is comprised of inscriptions from ca. XIV-XII B.C., written in a syllabic script which we call Linear B and was deciphered only in 1952. The language of the inscriptions is referred to as Mycenaean Greek. This project aims at creating a complete, annotated and searchable corpus of the texts written in Linear B.
