“Linear C” is sometimes used as a reference to the Arcado-Cypriot script of ancient Cyprus. I use the term, Linear C, not only to encompass all pre-alphabetic scripts of Cyprus but to also acknowledge the relationship of this body with linear scripts A and B. Since my scholarship of LinC is quite young, I have much to learn, for example, about the relationship between Arcado-Cypriot and Cypro-Minoan. I do not know whether these are different dialects or whether they constitute the same dialect as represented by multiple syllabaries. Consequently, I am gaining familiarity with six that Masson has isolated: the Akanthou, the common, the EteoCypriot, the Idalion, and the “ancient” Paphian and the “recent” Paphian.
