The authenticity of the Phaistos Disk

While observing and interpreting the mysterious Phaistos Disk for about one century, there is still a lot of talk about the authenticity of this Disk.

The wealthy art collector Dr. Jerome Eisenberg thinks that the Disk was forged by the Italian archaeologist Luigi Pernier, the discoverer of the Disk, himself. His opinion relies on the statement that Perner was jealous about the discovering of fellow archaeologists Arthur Evans and Federico Halbherr and tried to come up with a discovery that is more flashy than their discoveries, which include the amazing finds of Arthur Evans at Knosses.
