The Etruscan language has been difficult to analyze, as It resembles no other language in Europe or elsewhere. The Etruscan language was spoken and written by the Etruscan civilization in the ancient region of Etruria (modern Tuscany plus western Umbria and northern Latium) and in parts of Lombardy, Veneto, and Emilia-Romagna (where the Etruscans were displaced by Gauls). Etruscan was superseded by Latin, leaving only a few documents and some loanwords in Latin like Roma.

It cannot be shown conclusively to be related to any other language, living or dead, except for a couple of sparsely attested extinct languages.  Here they used ancient Greek an Phoenicians signs to fit their still mysterious language..
