Online tool for transliterating Linear B,
the first writing system of the mycenaean Greek language

The Linear B script is the first attested writing system of the Greek language. It is a syllabic script used in various places all over Greece during the mycenaean period. Among the places are Pylos, Thebes, Iklaina, Eleusis and Knossos.

This website offers a tool for transliterating latin script to Linear B and vice versa. Every syllable corresponds to a syllabogram as one can see in the table below. Furthermore, numbers are also transliterated: e.g. to get 55555 in Linear B, you have to first write 50000, then 5000 and so on, i.e. 500005000500505.

Here, you may find an input method for Linear B on Linux. Should you wish to contact us, you can always use the contact form found here.
