se-la-mi-ni-o-se | Σαλαμῑνιος (Saliminios) | from Salamis, a Salaminian
se-la-mi-ni-o-se appears in ancient, digraphic graffiti that is written in both alphabetic and syllabic Greek. The graffiti appears on a temple wall, at Karnak, that is dated to the 29th Egyptian dynasty (399-380 BCE). The alphabetic Greek reads ΣΑΛΑΜΙΝΙΟΣΙ, but Masson [1961:378], likely believing the final vowel to be “dead”, dismisses the final /I/ as a stray mark and transcribes Σαλαμῑνιος, which refers to Salamis, a major port on the east coast of Cyprus. See the treatment of final /se/ in LinC. See alt. sa-la-mi-ni-o-se [ICS 392].
