The Phaistos disk that I have decoded dates to the 17th century BC. I propose that it was designed based on a early alphabet of 15 letters. This alphabet might be related to the Proto-Sinaitic writing.

In the Phaistos disk we find one phrase:

ke-re



Could be read HELLEN(Greek).

EIMI H ZΩH = IHΣOYΣ
