Christian thanks for your guidance.


    AFTER 50 years of enigma, the text inscribed around the shoulder of the Calatagan Pot, the country?s oldest cultural artifact with pre-Hispanic writing, may have been deciphered as written in the old Bisayan language.

    Diggers discovered the pot in an archeological site in Calatagan, Batangas, in 1958. They sold it for P6 to a certain Alfredo Evangelista.

    Later, the Anthropological Foundation of the Philippines purchased the find and donated it in 1961 to the National Museum, where it is displayed to this day.

    The pot, measuring 12 centimeters high and 20.2 cm at its widest and weighing 872 grams, is considered one of the Philippines? most valuable cultural and anthropological artifacts. It has been dated back to the 14th and 16th centuries.

It is a national pride to know that Filipinos have their our own alphabet.
