The other word to consider is that starting A-QE- which is found ten times out of the sixty-one words on the Phaistos Disk. This root is indeed why the Phaistos Disk was written, or rather printed, and is the key that will one day unlock its meaning. The root A-QE- may be connected to AKKA which is found in many Indo-European languages meaning mother and may well be connected with AGAPO in Greek. If so, this would be a reference to the Great Mother Goddess of Crete, ASASARAME, Astarte, Demeter etc. and would explain the rhyming Phaistos Disk as a hymn to the Great Mother Goddess, which would also be the most likely interpretation due to its Minoan context and in accordance with what we know about Minoan religion.
