The book comprises three parts: a theoretical discussion of the methods for deciphering such a document, a practical attempt resorting to Hurrian and then Luwian as the language X encoded in the Disc with a syllabic grid of the Aegean type. The process of decipherment applies a top-down approach. During the first phase, the target is to determine a plausible syntactical structure. During the second phase, the target is to fill the syntactical structure with lexemes and to determine the most adequate syllabic grid.
The Disc is written in Luwian. What is more, the signary of the Disc has definite relationships with Hieroglyphic Luwian, Linear B and the other Greek syllabaries, confirming that the decipherment is valid.
