Linear B Syllabary

U+10000 – U+1007F   (65536–65663)

The Linear B Syllabary range was introduced with version 4.0 of the Unicode Standard and is located in Plane 1 (the Supplementary Multilingual Plane). Windows XP and later versions support supplementary characters by default. In Windows 2000, you need to enable support for supplementary characters. These characters cannot easily be displayed in earlier versions of Windows. Linear B also uses pictorial signs, which can be found in the Linear B Ideograms range.

The Linear B script was used in ancient Crete between 1400 and 1200 B.C. for a Greek dialect.

The characters that appear in the “Character” columns of the following table depend on the browser that you are using, the fonts installed on your computer, and the browser options you have chosen that determine the fonts used to display particular character sets, encodings or languages.

You can find some or all of the characters in this range in the Windows Unicode fonts Aegean, ALPHABETUM Unicode, Code2001, EversonMono, Free Idg Serif, MPH 2B Damase and Penuturesu.

To see exactly which characters are included in a particular font, you can use a utility such as Andrew West’s BabelMap, or Apple’s Character Palette.

If you are not familiar with the characters, you can check the characters displayed here with the graphical display at http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U10000.pdf.
