This above linear transcription, which constitute an eight month calendar, is the first step towards my demonstration of a 364-day calendar in the Phaistos disc. I ought to settle, that without adding the two initial "pearl strings" to the inscription (sign g) as genuine units, such possibility, as to proceed, by the way of trial and error, to a similar regular eight months calendar, do not exist.
N.B. The four partitions of 31 pictographs hold in them the four unpaired elements (31-2)4.

 

This arrangement reminds me of the peacock slowly spreading its train into a gorgeous fan.

THE MINOAN CALENDAR

A different attempt of tracing the four missing months.

Conditions:
(1) A08 only contains 4 signs, and not 5.
(2) The northern or southern area contains an 18th thorn.
Conclusion:
Signs and units are days, signgroups are equal to weeks. 7 or 8 signgroups with alternately 29 or 31 signs are months.

Move the 61th signgroup "A31" into the bull's eye, and unfold the two spirals to a single grand circle, that A30 is followed by B01 and B30 by A01. Such circle has a periphery of 240 signs.
Now displace the starting point from A01 one step back to B30, and count foreward 8 signgroups, accordingly {B30,A01,A02,A03,A04,A05,A06,A07}, and continue with the next 7 signgroups. Make this shift eight times in total for the 61-1 signgroups. A count over will ensure you that each area of 8 and 7 signgroups contains 29 and 31 visible signs by turn! Finally A31.
This was all about the 243 signs which are visible on the Disc in this productive variation of my 244-day prototype calendar.

If you are aware of my interpretation of this hieroglyphic inscription, you'll know that I plead that all signs form part of elements of always two signs. My method thereby determines 70 stem-elements together with 104 incomplete elements, because these only contain a single sign. In other words the inscription is in lack of 104 units. The same figure as the number of reduced elements. [N.B. The 66 stems are defined as pairs, this make the four unpaired stems (UT,OP,IH,BA) sligthly different from the main part].
Prototype: 70 x2 stem-coponenets and 104 incomplete elements consequently 104 absent units, plus 17 strokes. -365-.
Variation : 70 x2 stem-components and 103 reduced elements consequently 103 invisible units, plus 18 thorns. -364-.

Imagine a compass card being placed in the middle of the grand-circle, appointing {B30,A01,A02,A03,A04,A05,A06,A07}as the western area, and {A30,B01,B02,B03,B04,B05,B06,B07} as the eastern area. The signgroups in those two corners contain together 31 reduced stems or 31 absent units (if you can possess something absent.) The same pattern repeats itself for the 8 northern and 8 southern signgroups, while it is somehow different with the 7 signgroups sited northwest and the 7 in southwest with 29 units together, and finally for the northeast and southeast signgroups with 29 unit-days, thus forming a fleur-de-lis. As to symmetry, not unlike the pointer figure of the various Maya and Actez calendar stones.
This was my introduction to the missing season of the Phaistos Disc Calendar.

THE UNFOLDED CALENDAR

In the above figure "the packed circle" the two spirals on the disc are unfolded to a single "grand circle", which contains the 243-3 visible signs at the rim apart from the three signs of A31
At the same time the absent parts of the 103-1 reduced elements emerge as, previously covered, feathers into a median circle.
Finally an inner circle shows 18 thorns, which are concrete strokes that are made before the clay disc did set.
Every eight part of the circle is made up by alternating 7 and 8 signgroups.

In this variation there is no other way in which the blue numbers in the centre area of the circle (absent units+thorns )can be combined, and even get close to 29 and 31 units. It is a one choice situation.

It is important for me to state that this observation of a calendar has never been done before by anyone else, by that simple fact that no-one has thought out earlier that the two dotted dividers in front of A01 and B01 have values as normal signs. This discovery takes you to the conclussion that the signs are not syllables.
Now asking the question: what is then the situation? make you arrive to my discovery of the 22 stem-forms, verified by the gnomonical arrangement.
A calendrical construction is definitely the very most plausible interpretation of this famous disc from near Hagia Triada in southern Crete; though overheard!
Important: Do me the favour to go through the consecutive order of the 243 pictographs from a photo of the disc, and compare it to my figure above; you'll find, that the two versions agree! -[tmkiiissstttiiilll : iak satta runaR ret ...]-Gørlev stone.

MY 22 STEM-FORMS MEAN FOR THE PHAISTOS DISC THE SAME AS MICHAEL VENTRIS' SYLLABLES MEANT FOR LINEAR-B
