Paper Abstract

The subject of interest is ancient Babylonian cuneiform inscriptions in clay tablets representing three-dimensional carriers of information. Investigations have been carried out on original cuneiform signs as well as on models of signs. For the characterization of inscriptions by means of optical pattern recognition techniques an algorithm is presented that includes the following steps: data reduction, feature extraction, average pattern production, power spectrum mask production, average matched spatial filter production, and finally the correlation experiment.
