Translation of Linear B tablet 04-42 N u 17 from the Knossos “Armoury”

04-42 OPEDA YA AMOTE PERUSINWA TAZESIYA wheel

This tablet poses only one problem of any consequence. It is almost certain that the scribe misspelled – opero – on the first line, where he has inscribed it as – opeda - . There is nothing particularly unusual about such an error, given that the syllabogram – da – looks almost like that for – ro -, except that it is missing the left side of the horizontal bar. Any interpretation other than – opero – makes no sense in this context.
