IT MULTIPLIES THE ROOT-SIGNS, ARRIVING AT OVER TWO HUNDRED DERIVATIVE SIGNS ON THE BASIS OF A SOPHISTICATED RULE OF MULTIPLE VRIATIONS (SIMPLE OR COMPLEX) AND BY DUPLICATING OR TRIPLICATING THEM.
On this base of this 7500-year-old phallus, found in Romania, there is an inscription in the lost proto-European script that has never been deciphered. Among the characters, we can note some variations of the root-sign V.
root-signs developed into the individual signs of proto-European
writing, using two organising principles. The first consists of their
multiple variations, since they were modified by adding small graphic
markers which almost never appear as independent signs. These markers
could be parallel to each other, crossed or superimposed by one, two,
or three small strokes, but there were also small crosses, dots and
arches. They could also be duplicated-multiplied or inverted. The sophisticated
principle of the multiple variation for creating derivative signs characterises
other writing systems, but was used for the first time in proto-European
