Yes, I would, Ideopraxist, but I don't feel that I have made my earlier point clearly enough.

In archaeology, the context and position one finds something is everything. Ideally, an artifact should be photographed, and noted before it is even removed from where it is found.  The least amount of hands should touch it and tests should be made to concern it's age and origin.

Say you have two rocks, nearly identical.  One you found in Crete, the other, you found in North America, however scrawled the symbols on it as if it may have been from Crete.  Or perhaps you bought it at a flea market, and you can only guess where it is.

It stands to reason that the Crete rock might rightly have something to do with the Minoans.

The one from the flea market or even a quarry, who can say?  Context truly is everything. There is a scientific method that applies with every ancient artifact, and, unless it is observed, the artifact itself becomes compromised.
