Deciphered Secrets: The Calatagan Pot (A Philippine National Treasure): Ancient Inscriptions

Title: Deciphered Secrets: The Calatagan Pot (A Philippine National Treasure): Ancient Inscriptions
Author: Quintin Oropilla y Fortich, M.D.
Synopsis: This book by Quintin Oropilla y Fortich, M.D. successfully deciphers the Calatagan Pot Inscriptions using the 1593 Doctrina Christiana scripts as model. The Calatagan Pot with its inscriptions can truly be considered as a Philippine National Treasure as it is the only Philippine pre-historic writing in existence and, on account of its providence, could be dated epigraphically as a 10th century script. It is the prototype script of the 1593 Doctrina Christiana which is generally believed to be the oldest book printed in the Philippines.
