The Phoenicians

Plato describing Phoenicians as good seamen with no other skill, they did not leave civilization of intellectual and spiritual heritage.

Homer's (Odyssey
Ξ. 287- 290)
[...but,  when the eighth year came, a Phoenician, untrustworthy man, con artist, approached me....]
..αλλ' ότε δή ογδοόν μοι επιπλόμενον έτος ήλθε, δή τότε Φοίνιξ ήλθεν ανήρ απατήλια ειδώς, τρώκτης, ός δή πολλά κάκ` ανθρώποισιν εώργει.
Homer's (Odyssey
Ο. 415 - 417)

There seamen Phoenicians arrived, well known thieves, with lots of  fandangles in their ship.
Ένθα δέ Φοίνικες ναυσίκλυτοι ήλυθον άνδρες, τρώκται, μυρί' άγοντες αθύρματα νηί μελαίνη

Herodotus (484-425 B.C.)
the two men who killed Hipparchus belonged...I have myself looked into the matter and find that they were really Phoenicians.

Cadmus the Greek (=Κάδμος)
Phoenix son of Cadmus father of the  Phoenicians

Phoenicians=Cadmus descendants

The red writing indicates what was omitted by Herodotus.  
The Phoenicians who came with Cadmus
=(recent Cadmus) - amongst whom were the Gephyraei - introduced into Greece, after their settlement in the country, a number of accomplishments, of which the most important was writing, an art till then,
I think, unknown to the Greeks. At first they used the same characters as all the other Phoenicians, but as time went on, and they changed their language, (to Greek) they also changed the shape of their letters (to Greek letters). At that period most of the Greeks in the neighborhood were Ionians; they were taught these Greek letters by the Phoenicians and adopted them, with a few alterations, for their own use, continuing to refer to them as the Phoenician characters - as was only right, as the Phoenicians had introduced them.

[It is logical to believe that one who moves to a new country and is to stay there for a long period, is to learn the language and writing of that country, and not the opposite].

In Theogony Ancient Greek historian (Ησίοδος - Hesiodus (Hesiod (8th - 7th century bc)

Hesiod: Line 937: «Αρμονίην θ' , ήν Κάδμος υπέρθυμος θέτ' άκοιτιν».
[and he took Armonia as  wife the greathearted Cadmus].

Hesiod: Line 975: «Κάδμο δ'  Αρμονίη, θυγάτηρ χρυσέης Αφροδίτης, Ινώ και Σεμέλην και αγαυήν καλλιπάρηον Αυτονόην θ' ήν γήμεν Αρισταίος βαθυχαίτης γείνατο και Πολύδωρον ευστεφάνω ενί Θήβη».
[To Kadmus Armonia the daughter of the golden Aphrodite (gave birth) to Eno and Semeli and the glorious and beautiful in face Aftonoe, that she married Aristaus and she gave birth to Polidorus at Thebes the one with the beautiful walls].

Hesiod: Line 940: «Καδμείη δ' άρα Σεμέλη τέκε φαίδιμον υίον μειχθείσ' εν φιλότητι, Διώνυσον πολυγηθέα αθάνατον θνητή νύν δ' αμφότεροι θεοί είσι».
[Kadmus and Armonia's daughter Semeli she lie  with Zeus and she give birth the glorious and famous Dionysus immortal and his mother mortal but now they are Gods].

Homer's (Odyssey E. 299-333-335)
Τον δέ ίδεν Κάδμου θυγάτηρ, καλλίσφυρος Ινώ, λευκοθέη, ή πρίν μέν έην βροτός αυδήεσσα ν΄ν δ' αλός εν πελάγεσσι θεών εξέμμορε τμής»

[Odysseus on his despair fighting the sea and almost drowned, Cadmus daughter Eno emerged from the sea, long before she was mortal with human voice, but now in the seas she is honored as a Goddess].
Homer's (Iliad Z. 169-170)
«Γράψας ν πίνακι πτυκτ θυμοφθόρα πολλά» (Γράψας=he wrote - writes)
We read:
[Pritos with aggravating thought to revenge Velerofontes betrayal to Pritos hospitability, as an adulterer,  he wrote fearfully events, on double wooden plaques and he folded them, he send them with Velerofontes to Pritos father-in-law for Velerofontes bad doings, Pritos knew that Velerofontes could not read!!!. and would be  punished from Pritos father-in-law.]  




Cadmus honored by Gods Athena and Ares on his marriage

Here we see in Homer that he's confirming a great distance of chronological time placing Cadmus daughter  «Eno» the same era with Zeus.  (Cadmus the Greek his son Phoenix father of the Phoenicians)

Farther evidence of the originality of the Greek Alphabet 

Ventris, Michael George Francis (1922–1956)
The Arcado-Cyprian dialect, about which very little is known, is the descendant of a form spoken in Mycenaean times in at least the Peloponnese and some of the southern islands. The deciphering (1952) of the so-called Linear B script (by British linguist Michael Ventris), examples of which were found on tablets during the excavations made in Crete and on the mainland of Greece after 1900, revealed it as an ancestor (1500-1400 bc) of Arcado-Cyprian. These researches indicate that the Greeks were a literate people many hundreds of years before the period of the first Greek poet, Homer (probably the 9th century bc).

The Greek writing is as old since the appearance of Zeus and the muses more than 15.000 years old, long before the appearance of the Phoenicians.
MUSE ΚΑΛΛΙΟΠΗ (=CALLIOPE) KALLI (=good, right, brilliant, etc., OPE=open eye, broad vision.
The many languages of Greece Achaea, Crete, Dorea, Cydon, Pelasgia originating from Zeus era  causing confusion. The museum CALLIOPE considered as the greatest offer, sorting out the many words of the seamen to be understood by the people of the mountains and vice versa and in all regions and trades, and to create a common dictionary. ΓΛΩΣΣΑ(=GLOSSA=toque=language=knowledge) the knowledge of many words to rise the level of civilization. CALLIOPE portrayed seated in a thinking position her elbow resting on her knee, holding pen feather and plaques, her appearance showed that she was ready to read those plaques.
