Etruscan Phrases

by Mel Copeland

(from a work published in 1981)


The Pyrgi Gold Tablets


In 1981, when I had finished the basic work on the Etruscan words and phrases, showing declension and conjugation patterns, etc., I was not able to use the Pyrgi Gold Tablets. The photos available to me in various books were simply unreadable. Only with the advent of a scanner, which I use daily to update my site, was I able to view the tablets with sufficient confidence to dare a rendering, wrapping the text into the rest of my Etruscan_Phrases.html. The following are my renderings of the two texts, with words assigned locater numbers, which are followed by scans of the actual photos.
