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 was published in Unicode Standard version 14.0 in September 2021. Note: An updated chart (31 Dec. 2020) with one additional character and the accepted code points is located at: The repertoire in this latter document should be used as background on the final repertoire, shown now at

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.
