The Phaistos Disc is a circular clay disc covered with inscribed symbols on both sides that are unlike any signs in any writing system. It was discovered in the ancient city of Phaistos in Southern Crete in 1908. It is thought to date to around 1700 BC.

Jerome Rothenberg featured the foreword and first five poems of "Far," my Phaistos Disk manuscript, on Jacket2.
