The Influence on The Catalogue of Ships of Book II
of the Iliad of Mycenaean Linear B and Arcado-Cypriot
To read my modern twenty-first century translation
of the frequent incidents of archaic Mycenaean &
Arcado-Cypriot influences in lines 582-614 of
“The Catalogue of Ships” in Book II of Homer’s Iliad,
please CLICK on the downsized text you see here.
When you do so, you will be sent directly to the
entire post on my own Blog, Linear B, Knossos &
Mycenae, where you will be able to read a very
LARGE copy of this text, and a detailed explanation
of the significant impact of these archaic dialects
on Homer’s own archaic Greek: Click on the image:
With special thanks to Adonis, our new research partner
in Greece on Mycenaean Linear B studies and The
Catalogue of Ships in Book II of the Iliad.
