The Perusine Cippus: A Famous Etruscan Inscription

currently in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, Perugia


[image ALT: zzz. It is a front view of the Perusine Cippus, one of the longest Etruscan inscriptions on stone to have suvived.]

Found in 1822. Without further commentary, until I get a good deal better at reading Etruscan — but notice that there are about 2 lines overlap between each pair of images:

[image ALT: zzz. It is the middle third of a front view of the Perusine Cippus, one of the longest Etruscan inscriptions on stone to have suvived.]


[image ALT: zzz. It is the bottom third of a front view of the Perusine Cippus, one of the longest Etruscan inscriptions on stone to have suvived.]

Unfortunately, I failed to photograph the small side (to the left) that has the rest of the inscription.
