etruskian script

Already around the 8th century BC, the Etruskians adopted the Greek script and adapted it to their own language. The Etruskians lived in Toscany and their script was written from right to left, and sometimes alternately from right to left and left to right (cfr Boustrophèdon). The Etruskian alphabet assumed its final form in the 5th century BC with a total of 20 characters among which four vowels (a, e, i, u) and 16 consonants. It originally (8th-7th century) consisted of 26 characters.
