On October 31 I will present my sensational historic paper at Burlington House, Piccadilly, London, deciphering Old Elamite Script using Greek syllables from mz decipherment of the Phaistos Disk thirty years ago and in the process I will view an Elamite statue that is either Helen of Troy or Clymene, also named Asia, who gave Asia its geographic name.
