glagolitic

(Via SME via TASR) The August 12th edition of Népszabadság reports an incredible find: a shard of pottery (most likely a fragment of a bottle or a jug) with Glagolitic letters was found near Zalavár (aka Blatnohrad). According to Miklós Béla Szöke who is charge of the excavations, the letters iže and onъ (plus a cross) can clearly be read on the shard - but don't take his word for it, see for yourselves (source).
Even considering the history of the place (Pribina's and Koceľ's stronghold, reportedly one of the stops on Cyril and Method's way to Moravia and the site of one of the schools founded by the brothers), I'm filing this one under 'too good to be true.' Watch this space for more.

It's just way too easy for something like this to be forged (or should I say FHEFHAKED).

Precisely. I mean, scratched into a shard of pottery, seriously?
On the other hand, it was found three meters deep in a stratum which - so the archeologists - can be reliably dated to 865-866. Which would be pretty awesome. Let's wait and see.

FHEFHAKED

hahahahahahaha *highfive*

Actually, it seems that the Praenestine Fibula is being thought to be genuine again, at least per Markus Hartmann 2005 Die frühlateinischen Inschriften und ihre Datierung whom Weiss (forthcoming 2009) agrees with...

Who knows for how long before people change their minds yet again!?!

As for this blog post: Cool... I gotta watch out for further news on this one.

Funny, I always thought that the rumors about Praeneste fibula being fake were just that, rumors, nothing else. Thanks for the update, fellas.

You're kidding, right? Please tell me you're kidding. I'm too old to keep twisting my brain around like this.

And what do you know, the spam is actually relevant, being about faked watches.
