Breaking news: Priam's treasure returned to the Berlin Museum
We are able to present some early results of the new investigation being performed on the treasure. A text written in linear B on an "ostracon" (ceramic pothserd) appears to have as title something that we can translate as the "New Trojan Times" and "Cassandra jailed; a victory for Procurer Xen Kuxnell".
The text is fragmented, but some relevant lines which have been translated are;
"Xen Kuxnell, procurer general of the Trojan state....."
".... Cassandra, accused of fraud and embezzlement of state funds for her activity of prophetess.....
"..... Jailing order obtained by the high Trojan Court..... "
"..... ostracon messages exchanged by Cassandra and her colleague, archpriest Lacoon, which had been made public recently, contain sentences which have been understood as indicating that the seers were attempting to alter the data in order to obtain public funding for their studies on the artifact known as 'Trojan Horse.' Cassandra and others have surmised that the Trojan Horse is a danger for the city of Troy because of the alleged presence of hidden Greek troop inside."
"..........Timiux Ballux, of the "friends of prophecy" group declared that the fragments exchanged by Cassandra and her colleagues contain evidence for alteration and suppression of data that did not support claims of horse-related danger. These leaked ostracon exchanges detail attempts to alter data that is the basis of wooden horse modeling. These are actions that constitute a serious breach of prohetic ethics. "
"Antonyx Wattx - "what's up on the walls?" - declared that no proof could be provided that the noises coming from inside the Trojan Horse are not of natural origin."
"Trojan senator Jamiux Inhofex has declared that stopping the demolition of the city walls in order to make room for the horse to pass would damage the Trojan economy and cause the loss of many jobs. He also declared that suggesting that the Trojan Horse is dangerous is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the Trojan people...."
No further text could be deciphered from the ostracon fragment which showed evident signs of having been burned in a strong fire.
