Since its discovery in 1908, the Phaistos Disc have stirred debate. The round clay disc, unearthed on Crete in a Minoan palace called Phaistos, the artifact features 241 symbols that were pressed into the clay in a spiral pattern. The symbols are not directly linked to a written language and the meaning of the symbols is unknown.
Some archaeologists have theorized that the message on the disc is a song, prayer, hymn, or other type of religious script. The Phaistos Disc is very old, dating to between 1850 and 1600 BC, during the middle to late Minoan Bronze Age.
