The Buyla inscription is a 9-word, 56-character inscription written in the Greek script but in a non-Greek language. It is found on a golden buckled bowl or cup which is among the pieces of the Treasure of Nagyszentmiklós (Wikipedia page [1]) which are now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna [2]. The bowl is 12 cm in diameter and weighs 212g, and has a handle or buckle, perhaps for hanging on a belt. The inscription is found around the outside of a circular design in the middle of the bowl. In the place where the inscription begins and ends, there is a cross.
