Handmade gold earrring of the famous ancient writings disc of Phaistos.

The Phaistos Disc (also spelled Phaistos Disk, Phaestos Disc) originally was a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos on the island of Crete, possibly dating to the middle or late Minoan Bronze Age (second millennium B.C.). Now, the island of Crete is part of modern Greece. The original disk is about 15 cm (5.9 in) in diameter and covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning, and even its original geographical place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology. (Resource: Wikipedia)
