Fuente Magna: Rosetta Stone of the Americas

A large stone vessel, resembling a libation bowl, and now known as the Fuente Magna, was originally discovered in a rather casual fashion by a country peasant from the ex-hacienda CHUA, property of the Manjon family situated in the surrounding areas of Lake Titicaca about 75/80 km from the city of La Paz.

The site where it was found has not been subject to investigation until recently. The Fuente Magna has not been shown in Bolivia until year 2000. It was considered false, until we began the investigations.

The piece in question is a little out of place. It is beautifully engraved in chestnut-brown both inside and out. It reveals zoological motifs and anthropomorphic characters within.

Sumerian text found on artifacts:

Cuneiform was not just used to write Semitic languages, it was also used to write Hurrian, Hittite (Indo-European langauges), Sumerian and Elamite, languages which were not Semitic. As a result, it is believed that the authors of the Fuente Bowl and Pokotia monument spoke a Sumerian language because of the appearance of both cuneiform and Proto-Sumerian symbols on these figures. Given this visual identification of two writing systems on these artifacts we have to look at Mesopotamian history and see who used both Proto-Sumerian writing and who used cuneiform writing at the same time? The answer is: the Sumerians.

I hadn't realized this topic was so old, and it's discouraging that after initial posting, this post really got no additional attention.

The fact that this Bowl, the Fuenta Magna, as well as the Monolith/Oracle discussed in this article bear both cuneform and semitic writing is quite significant.

Further, it's respectable that the Fuenta Magna bowl was not put on display for a long time over concern of it's authenticity and suspicions of fakery due to the cuneform and semitic writing being so far out of place in bolivia.

This is quite a significant indication of world trade occurring on a scale previously unimagined as well as out of place and unacceptable to the accepted Western Paradigm of worl history.

This bowl, as well as the monolith/oracle by extension in supporting indication of a world trade between the new and old worlds long before accepted paradigms would have imagined, also supports the case with the a certain white powdery substance associated with the coca plant found in significant portions with Egyptian mummies.

Very very interesting.

Likewise, even though this is a field I am totally fascinated by, I was unaware of this post even after lurking around here for years. This is a remarkable artifact.

I really enjoy how this artifact supports the argument for wide spread world trade long before accepted paradigm says such things were even possible.

It ties some things together regarding such as the anomalous drug positive tests done on Egyptian mummies for a substance that could only have come from South America.

Evidence slowly mounts that our ancestors were quite more well travelled than we like to think they were.

Ow, unconfirmed reports about ''Sumerian'' stuff that will surely lead to more discoveries on end times

Here, how about

The inscription includes three versions of the same text, written in three different cuneiform script languages: Old Persian, Elamite, and Babylonian (a later form of Akkadian). In effect, then, the inscription is to cuneiform what the Rosetta Stone is to Egyptian hieroglyphs: the document most crucial in the decipherment of a previously lost script.

The ledge below the inscriptionThe inscription is approximately 15 metres high by 25 metres wide and 100 metres up a limestone cliff from an ancient road connecting the capitals of Babylonia and Media (Babylon and Ecbatana, respectively). The Old Persian text contains 414 lines in five columns; the Elamite text includes 593 lines in eight columns, and the Babylonian text is in 112 lines.

The FM isn't considered an artifact of Sumer. Probably a bad fake

It's translator and I use the term loosely, is a notorious individual, known for translating every kind of the thing; like Linear A, the Indus Script, he makes stuff up
