Should anyone be interested in knowing what the characters regarding post number 31 mean (I have been wishing for years):

Silver cup (item Q) from Marvdasht, Fars, with Linear-Elamite inscription on it, from the 3rd millennium BC and kept in the National Museum of Iran. According to Desset, the inscription reads "For the Lady of Marapsha (toponym), (named) Shumar-asu, I made this silver vase. In the Temple that will be known by my name, Humshat, I dedicated it with goodwill for you."

What I find amazing is that the characters are very abstract and geometric. Even more amazing when you consider that it was in use up to 5k years ago.
