The Baska tablet is probably the most famous monument of early Croatian literacy, dating from about 1100. Its size and weight are impressive: 2×1 m, 800 kg. According to Branko Fucic and Eduard Hercigonja, the language of inscription is Croatian – Chakavian with elements of liturgical Church Slavonic, and the script is Croatian Glagolitic.

It was found in the church of St. Lucy (Sv. Lucija) in Jurandvor near Baska on Krk, the largest Croatian island. Since 1934 the monument is placed in the main building of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts in Zagreb.
