A large stone vessel, resembling a libation bowl, and now known as the Fuente Magna , was originally discovered by a country peasant in the Lake Titicaca area, about 50 miles from La Paz, Bolivia. The site where it was found has not been subject to investigation until recently. The Fuente Magna was not shown publicly in Bolivia until the year 2000. Up until then it was considered false, until investigations began. It is beautifully engraved in chestnut-brown both inside and out. Study has continued into what many refer to as the "Rosetta Stone of the Americas". Preliminary investigations indicate that: we are dealing with an artifact which was made in keeping with Mesopotamian tradition; it contains two texts, one in cuneiform and another Semitic language; according to the symbols used this artifact appears to date from the transitional period between ideographical writing and cuneiform; chronologically this leads us to the 3500/3000 B.C. (Sumerian/Akkadian) period.
