A thorough study of the entire corpus of Minoan roundels--a unique type of admistrative document which took the form of a clay disk with seal impressions on the rim and linear A signs on the faces. They were never attached to objects and are only found with linear A inscriptions. Hallager makes comparisons with other types of Minoan administrative documents and looks in detail at the seal impressions and inscriptions, making comparisons with other types of sealed documents. He concludes that they were used for local administrative purposes. The catalogue is contained in a separate volume, each item described in detail with photographs.
