This is a proposal to get the Cypro-Minoan script into the international character encoding standard Unicode. The Cypro-Minoan script is an undeciphered syllabary used on Cyprus and surrounding areas during the Late Bronze Age (ca. 1550-1050 BCE).
The script is scheduled to be published in Unicode Standard version 14.0 in September 2021. Note: An updated chart (31 Dec. 2020) with one additional character is located at: https://www.unicode.org/L2/L2020/20156r-n5137r-cyprominoan-font.pdf. The repertoire in this latter document should be used as a reference point until the publication of the script in Unicode 14.0.
Financial support was provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (PR-253360-17) for the Universal Scripts Project, part of the Script Encoding Initiative at UC Berkeley. The Unicode Consortium hosts the document registry that contains this proposal.
