The newspaper WELT is has just reported about this.

I guess you just need to identify the symbols with an existing  alphabet, it doesn't sound different as searching for hieroglyph at first sight. You only need to find the key of the whole structure.

I would make up some crap like that so they think I'll tell them where the money is and not kill me. At any rate for english codefinding, the most common letter is e and then a and the most common word is the, so you look for those as the key.

Israel & Yehuda, I think this are the first steps. But the language should be French, because the guy was a frenchman.

I think too, that this was already done with small results, because the gold is still hidden.

From the army I remember, that we had some kind of templates, that you put over the text. It is written quite semetric.

Another method was intervall counting and a matrix (i.e. A1 is b2)

But perhaps there is no content at all in it and it was his last way to make fun of the people who killed him.  :::D
