Τhis ceramic handmade version of Phaistos Disc on a matte plexiglass base is an all-time classic gift. It consists of 241 symbols including Linear A, Linear B and hieroglyphs. It remains a mystery of Ancient Greece, as it has not yet been officially decrypted.

The disc was found in the basement of the Minoan palace of Phaistos and dates back to the 17th century BC. Its diameter is approximately 15cm, its width is 2cm and it is made of clay. On one side there are 122 symbols, while on the other 119. The symbols using vertical lines are divided into groups (words). Many archaeologists have tried to decipher the Phaistos Disc. A lot of interpretations have been given, such as that it is a prayer, a geometric theorem, a storytelling, a diary, and others. Some researchers consider that it describes the labours of Hercules, as well as the evolution of the human nature.
