The Minoan "mwi-nu ro-ja" is Sanskrit's "manuah no raja", English "Manu - our King" .
The PBS Documentary says Linear-A comes from Iran - from where the Indian Script also came from. My point is that there is an enough evidence to show a Global Civilization that belonged to one family and was interconnected.
It is like the Global Western Christian and English speaking world gets disconnected because of some severe natural catastrophe and with passage of time and space, people forget how they were interconnected globally.
Please note the word Crete's Etymology, which is what it means: The Land that was cut-off (from main land due to some deluge) or sunken by some Tsunami upheaval.
It is not clear if Minos was a name or a title, the Cretan word for "king", or indeed, to take a euhemerist position, the name of a particular king that was subsequently used as a title. There is a name in Minoan Linear A mi-nu-te that may be related to Minos. According to La Marle's reading of Linear A, we should read mwi-nu ro-ja (Minos the king) on a Linear A tablet. The royal title ro-ja is read on several documents, including on stone libation tables from the sanctuaries, where it follows the name of the main god, Asirai (the equivalent of Sanskrit Asura, and of Avestan Ahura). La Marle suggests that the name mwi-nu (Minos) is expected to mean 'ascetic' as Sanskrit muni, and fits this explanation to the legend about Minos sometimes living in caves on Crete. If royal succession in Minoan Crete descended matrilinearly— from the queen to her firstborn daughter— the queen's husband would have become the Minos, or war chief. Some scholars see a connection between Minos and the names of other ancient founder-kings, such as Menes of Egypt, Mannus of Germany, and Manu of India, and even with Meon of Phrygia and Lydia (after him named Maeonia), Mizraim of Egypt in the Book of Genesis and the Canaanite deity Baal Meon
