If you have the detailed translations of such ostraca would you mind posting that source so the rest of us can see that evidence? That's all I've been looking for since the beginning of this discussion, and the references I've seen only refer tangentially to such ostraca but don't include the direct translation themselves. I'm only trying to get past the hearsay and straight to the evidence.
I can't find Bulow's Ostraca Part IV anywhere.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
