The olive ideogram L49 is not very frequent in the Hagia Triada archives. It occurs in about half the cases in record of delivery of a series of commodities which do not present a particularly interesting species of text. Only in two cases, HT 33 and HT 101, olives are listed in records of payment to labourers characterized by the notation sa-ra2, which means something like «so much to pay». The first one does not lead to quantitative analysis since too many ideograms representing unknown commodities are listed, which may be interchangeable or not. HT 101, however, is of a different nature, since it only shows the known commodities wheat, barley, olive oil and olives.
