Phaistos, 2007. The Palace of Phaistos, looking northeast. Phaistos, built on a bluff overlooking the Mesara plain, was the second greatest Minoan town and dominated south central Crete. At left of center, broad steps provided seats for the theatral area of the West Court. To its right, a grand staircase led to the main entrance to the palace complex. In 1908 Italian archaeologists discovered the unique Phaistos Disk, with spiral hieroglyphic inscriptions impressed on both sides. No one has yet deciphered it.
