Yes there was. It is called Linear. There are 2 Linears. The Linear B, a written system of Greek 3.300 years old which has been deciphered. Actually my name ΔΗΜΗΤΡΗΣ/Demetres appears at Linear B. (Below a Photograph of my name in Linear B). Yeap I have one of the most ancient names globally.
And Linear A, -which is an Hierglyphic Language (Probably), and still we haven’t managed to figure out the correspondence between Hieroglyphics and Sounds. Second Photograph.
