Why is the Harappan script called enigmatic ?

Asked by shivamkumaryou2004 4th February 2021, 10:41 AM
Answered by Expert
The Harappan script is called enigmatic because of the following reasons:
  • Most inscriptions were short, the longest contained about 26 signs, each sign stood for a vowel or consonant. Sometimes it contained wider space, sometimes shorter, had no consistency. Till today, the script remains undeciphered.
  • The script was non-alphabetical, it had many signs, somewhere between 375 and 400. It was written from right to left.
  • In the script, the motif conveyed a meaning to those who could not read.
