A language called Iberian was spoken and written in Greece and Italy, then in Spain until it disappeared under Roman occupation. Linguists recognize five variants of Iberian, all based on Old European. The same language was written in north Africa as far east as Liberia, and in southern France called Glozel.
To understand the Iberian dialect, I translated more than a hundred names of Iberian soldiers that Roman scribes had meticulously recorded. Countless others had looked at the same list of names and not recognized Finnish because both vowels and consonants were different.
Having established the rules, I translated some Latin letters on a cliff, a prayer to High Father to save his Anna; three Iberian stock phrases; then a difficult inscription on a lead plaque with several unknown letters. Many of these letters might apply to Archaic Cypro-Minoan. Greek and Italian museums display Iberian inscriptions, one being on the front leg of a famous bronze Chimera of Arrezo in Florence, which begins 'Make peace now'.
