The Unicode standard (Unicode 6.0, ch 14, p459 (p.10 of
http://www.unicode.org/versions/Unicode6.0.0/ch14.pdf)) says, about
Aegean numbers :
The signs are used in Linear B. The Cypriot syllabary appears to
use the same system, as evidenced by the fact that the lower
digits appear in extant texts.
So the relevant scripts seem to be :
* Cprt 403 Cypriot
* Lina 400 Linear A
* Linb 401 Linear B
Unless, of course, if they are intended to be used in scholarly
publications, but I guess that such reasoning would add every writing
system used on wikipedia to almost every character, and would deprive
such characterization of any utility.
