summer haiku d’été – still on her leash = toujours à la laisse

still on her leash,
my Maine Coon’s ghost hovers here – 
leaves whisper her name

Argentee still on her leash 620

toujours à la laisse,
le fantôme da ma Maine Coon  –
paroles des feuilles

I miss Argentée terribly. She passed away on March 14 2019. I often cry when I think of her.

Argentée me manque tellement. Elle est morte le l4 mars 2019. Je pleure souvent quand je pense à elle.


Mycenaean Linear B and Minoan Linear A tablets with leading eponyms in the first position on the first line of tablets:

We now turn to Mycenaean Linear B and Minoan Linear A tablets with leading eponyms, i.e. personal names. Based on the sound practical principle that the formula for Mycenaean Linear B tablets containing eponyms is highly likely to mimic the formula for eponyms on Minoan Linear A tablets, in other words, basing ourselves on the assumption that eponyms will appear in almost exactly the same configuration in Mycenaean Linear B as they previously did in Minoan Linear A, we can infer from these three Mycenaean Linear B tablets repeating the same personal name, Dumirewe, on the first line, that if there are any Minoan Linear A tablets exhibiting the same disposition of a single word on the first line that is repeated, then that name is more likely than not also to be an eponym, closely following the formula on the three Mycenaean Linear B tablets shown here:

Eponym Dumirewe in Mycenaean Linear B KN 1175 - KN 1180 sheep

Moving onto Minoan Linear A tablets, we find:

Lnear A eponyms ASIYAKA & KIRITA2 KIRITAI

And wouldn’t you believe it, there is not just one eponym appearing on the first line of a Linear A tablet, but two, as illustrated here on Linear A tablets HT 28, HT 114 & HT 121. The eponym (personal name), Asiyaka appears twice on the same tablet (!) HT 114. The first instance of Asiyaka appears on the Recto, and the second on he Verso, which neatly explains why it is repeated.

As for the personal name, Kirita2 or Kiritai, it appears on two separate tablets, HT 114 & HT 121, again on the first line in both instances. This formula is almost exactly the same as that we have just demonstrated on Mycenaean Linear B tablets KN 1175, KN 1179 & KN 1180 above. If that does not convince you that Asiyaka and Kirita2 or Kiritai are not eponyms, I do not know what can.

Once again, the principle of leading eponyms is firmly based on their strictly linear placement on the first line of both Minoan Linear A and Mycenaean Linear B tablets, and their position on that line, which is always the leading, in other words, in both syllabaries, the eponym typically and almost always appears in the first position of the first line. This strictly formulaic placement of eponyms in the leading position on tablets is typical of both syllabaries, since they are both used for inventories alone.

Still, as we shall soon discover in upcoming posts, this is not always the case. Nothing is ever cast in stone in any language, let alone in Minoan Linear A and Mycenaean Linear B.
