From wiki:

George Hempl, 1911 (interpretation as Ionic Greek, syllabic writing); A-side first; reading inwards;
Florence Stawell, 1911 (interpretation as Homeric Greek, syllabic writing); B-side first; reading inwards;
Benjamin Schwarz, 1959 (interpretation as Mycenean Greek, syllabic writing, comparison to Linear cool smiley; A-side first; reading inwards;
Jean Faucounau, 1975, (interpretation as "proto-Ionic" Greek, syllabic writing; A-side first; reading inwards;
Steven R. Fischer, 1988 (interpretation as a Greek dialect, syllabic writing); A-side first; reading inwards;
Torsten Timm, 2005 (syllabic writing, comparison to Linear A) B-side first; reading inwards;

After having studied the disk I propose that the disk is read outwards, side B being the first one.

How can hieroglyphic writing be an Linear A imitation. Linear A is a syllabic linear - not hieroglyphic writing. Some consider Linear B as an attempt to create a single writing system with elements from both Cretan hieroglyphic and Linear A writing. In any case Linear B is less "linear" than linear A. If the Arkalokhori axe is a pseudo-inscription engraved by an
illiterate in uncomprehending imitation of authentic Cretan hieroglyphics on other similar
axes, then how is it that we find so many similarities with the Phaistos disk? There was a great deal of Cretan hieroglyphic symbols, statistically these similarities don't add up.
