Inscribed "Onasioros dedicated to the god Apollo in (good fortune!)"
The inscription on this relief is in Cypriote syllabary, the origin of which has proven difficult to trace. Past attempts have been made to link it to Egyptian and Hittite hieroglyphics, the letter forms of the Phoencian alphabet and to the Cretan script Linear A, as well as the Mycenaean script Linear B.
