The issue isn't whether it's possible to do an absolute dating of this or that glyph paint, since it's likely the paint has been far too tainted with modern carbon to give any meaningful result. Rather, I think the challenge is to compare the mineral composition of paints to see if any glyphs stand out as having a different composition. Obviously, the SCA would never approve taking various paint scrapings here and there, so we would need to apply a non-invasive optical/radio spectroscopic/interferometric method.
How can any of us ever know, when all we can do is think?
