Early Cycladic culture evolved in three phases, from c. 3300 until 2000 BC, when it was increasingly influenced by Minoan Crete, to the south. The Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age Cycladic culture is best known for its schematic, flat idols (intended to be lying down) carved out of pure white marble centuries before Minoan culture arose.

Discovered in 1908, the Phaistos Disc is a disk of fired clay from the Minoan palace of Phaistos on the Greek island of Crete, possibly dating to the middle or late Minoan Bronze Age. It is about 6 in. in diameter and covered on both sides with a spiral of stamped symbols. Its purpose and meaning, and even its original geographical place of manufacture, remain disputed, making it one of the most famous mysteries of archaeology.
